An inexpensive, easy-to-make and delicious soup. This slightly modified recipe stems from Mumtaz Khan at Mumtaz Paan House in Bradford, England. Mung beans is the exquisite choice, but red or yellow lentils also make a delicious result (green lentils are not recommended). The chicken stock can be replaced with vegetable stock for a vegetarian variety. This recipe can also be made with less liquid and served as a stew.¨ Improvement, a little off tradition, but works even better: 1) Fry the lentils/beans for a few seconds in ghee before adding the spices and liquid. 2) Add just a little tomato purée (1 tsp) to the soup. 3) Add one diced potato together with the lentils/beans.

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)
