Indian Cheesecake (Bhapa Doi)

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Everyone knows how much I love cheesecake!  While looking for a recipe over the weekend I came across this amazingly simple Indian dessert called "Bhapa Doi".  It only has 2 main ingredients in it and tastes great!

I am definitely going to make this again, and maybe experiment a bit too by adding a few other flavours... but I'm not going to dress up in my Indian inspired garb this time for my blog photo though (snigger). 

Please note, you will need to allow about 8 hours to drain your yoghurt before you start making this dish.

1 litre natural unsweetened (preferable full fat) yoghurt
1 (395g) can condensed milk
2 tablespoons sliced almonds (I didn't have any so improvised with chocolate chips)

Place a large coffee filter in a large strainer (I just used a sieve).  Pour yoghurt into the filter.  Place in the refrigerator and allow to drain for about 8 hours or until it is the consistency of soft cream cheese.  Add the condensed milk to the strained yoghurt and mix thoroughly.

Grease a baking tin or a glass baking dish (20cm round works well).  Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish and bake at 180°C for about 30 minutes, or until the mixture is firm and the top is lightly browned.  Take out of the oven, and sprinkle almonds evenly over the top.  Cool, and serve sliced into wedges at room temperature.

Oh yeah - I loved this, and so did most of the family!
