Things to know about Rasgulla Recipe

The Indian Traditional Milk Ball or Rasgulla is an Indian dessert made with curdled milk. This sweet looks like a white ball dipped in sugar syrup. The word “Rasgulla” is derived from two Hindi words, “Ras” and “Gulla”. “Ras” means juice and “Gulla” means ball. The dish is called Roshogolla in Bengali and Rasagola in Odia.

There is debate over the origin of the dish. Some people claim that the dish originated in West Bengal, others claim it originated in Orissa. A Kolkata-based confectioner, Nobin Chandra Das, is believed to create the spongy dessert. Another theory states that someone else created the dish and Das only popularized it. A third group argues that the dessert originated in Bangladesh. The Bengali and Odisha variant of Rasgulla differs.
