I have known this recipe to be a traditional Indian bengali sweet dish. Mishti is sweet in Bengali and Dohi is yoghurt. Bengal has given India a range of sweet dishes that include sandesh, ras malai, rasgulla and mishti dohi. Here is a quick and tasty adaptation of the dessert that I learnt from a Bengali friend. To me it tasted a little like cheese cake, but my husband disagrees. So I would suggest all cheese cake lovers to try it out. (Recipes courtesy of Food.com - Chef tuti)

Addictive and extremely healthy! Sometimes you can find sprouted lentils or bean medley in the higher-end markets, but you can sprout your own! TO SPROUT LENTILS: Measure about 6 to 8 tablespoons and soak them in plenty of water to cover overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse, and put them into a wide mouth jar covered with cheesecloth and secured with a rubber band. Lay the jar on its side and cover with a towel. Set aside on the kitchen counter to sprout for the day, rinsing them once or twice and draining them thoroughly. If the weather is cold, they may take a little longer to sprout. Rinse them and leave them until the next morning when you'll notice each lentil has sprouted a little tail. They will now be ready to enjoy. Time estimate does not include sprouting time.
