Rasgulla or rasogulla is a very popular Bengali sweet delicacy which is most widely consumed sweet among Bengalis. Rasgulla was first invented by the sweet makers (or moira in Bengali) of Puri, the famous temple town in Orissa. In the mid 19th century Oriya cooks were hired at the rich Bengali households and with them, arrived the coveted recipe of rasogolla. In 1868, a Bong sweet maker, Nabin Chandra Das refined the sweet delicacy to have a better shelf life. That was the birth of sponge rasgulla.
Rasgulla is generally made from balls of chhena (an Indian cooking cheese) and semolina dough, cooked in sugar syrup. The rasgulla originated in Orissa, where it is also known by its original name, Khira mōhana. Rasgulla is usually served at room temperature or chilled. A popular variant in Orissa and Bengal is freshly prepared hot rasgullas. In Orissa, it is not uncommon to embed a single raisin or cashew inside each rasgulla. Cardamom seeds may also be embedded to create a fragrant version. In northern India, the dish comes flavored in saffron, rosewater, and sometimes garnished with chopped pistachios.
