Tnf-Pedia on authentic sweet of India: Rosogulla or Rasgulla
Rasgulla is a syrupy dessert popular in the Indian subcontinent and regions with South Asian diaspora. It is made from ball-shaped dumplings of chhena (an Indian cottage cheese) and semolina dough, cooked in light syrup made of sugar. This is done until the syrup permeates the dumplings.
The dish originated in East India; the present-day states of Odisha and West Bengal have variously claimed to be its birthplace. In 2016, a committee formed by the government of Odisha asserted that the sweet had originated in Odisha, where it is offered at the Puri Jagannath Temple in form of a variant known as Rasagola. In 2015, the West Bengal government applied for a Geographical Indications tag for the variant called “Banglar Rasogolla (Bengali Rasgulla), clarifying that the Bengal and Odisha variants were different in “both in colour, texture, taste, juice content and method of manufacturing. In 2017, when West Bengal received the GI status, the GI Registry clarified that the tag was only for “Banglar Rasogolla”, and should not be seen as a decision on the sweet’s origin.
