Rosogolla/ Rasgulla is the most famous traditional sweet dish from Bengal. These super soft and spongy mildly sweet cottage cheese balls are not just loved by Bengalis but is very popular in the Indian subcontinent and regions within South Asian diaspora. It is a round shaped Chenna/ Paneer (cottage cheese) dumplings that are cooked in a mild sugar syrup permeates the dumplings.
The dessert is called Rasagola in Odia and Rasgulla in Hindi. The dish basically originated in Eastern part of India. However, there has been lots of controversies and claims as regards its original birthplace, I have been a ‘Probashi Bangali’ (Bengali brought up and staying outside Bengal) almost all my life and have stayed in Odisha for a considerable period of time. So without entering into any controversy about the origin of this delicacy, I would like to share with you the recipe of “Sponge Rosogolla”, the way we love it.
