Tasty Mud Cup Dessert (Mishti Doi)

The temperature outside is rising high day by day. Heat is just increasing; summers bring in the unwanted tan, skin problems to human body. We often eat less and keep our diet light – be it food /drinks/ dessert. Here is one of my favourite dessert recipes; I would love to share with you all – Mud cup Mishti Doi. In English we would say “Sweet Yogurt”. It is a Bengali dessert, for an authentic taste would recommend trying it from Kolkata. Only, drawback is you need to wait over night to enjoy this white sweet dish.
