Rasgullas is a popular Indian dessert made with milk and sugar. Rasgulla is a sweet in sugar syrup. It is made by making small round shaped dumpling. They are made of chena which is the Indian cottage cheese and are mixed with semolina and made into dough. Then finally these round dumplings are cooked in sugar syrup for some time until the sugar syrup is absorbed by the dumplings. These rasgullas add a good amount of protein to the body. They are a light dish as compared to other desserts of India. Therefore they are available throughout the year. Unlike other sweets, they are not only prepared for festivals and functions but are served anytime anyone wants something sweet. They are good for health but are not healthy to have many at a time. A limited consumption at a time is healthy. It is very simple to make at home. Just take milk and curdle it with lime juice or vinegar and add semolina to the sieved milk. Make dumplings of the dough and cook in a sugar syrup till they absorb the syrup up to some extent.
The origin of this dessert was in an Eastern part of India. Odisha and West Bengal are known to be the birthplace of this dessert. But Odisha formed a committee in 2016 and said rasgulla has been originated from Odisha. West Bengal's rasgullas are different from Odisha rasgulla in colour, texture, taste and juicy content. Even the method of preparation of these rasgulla in West Bengal is different. So they also wanted to state that their rasgulla needs geographical indications tag for their local variety. In west Bengal rasgulla is known as 'Banglar Rasogolla'.
