The Rasagola has been synonymous throughout the years with two neighbouring eastern States of India West Bengal and Odisha.

A long drawn battle of ownership has come to a draw now with each State receiving a Geographical Indication (GI) tag for the syrupy sweet from their respective States.

The 'Odisha Rasagola' has been awarded the GI tag in July 2019.

Back in November 2017, West Bengal has received the GI tag for its Rasgulla.

Prior to which both States vehemently claimed the origin of the Indian sweet.

The ‘Odisha Rasagola’, according to the application submitted to the Registrar of GI, is a sweet from the state of Odisha made of chhena (cottage cheese) cooked in sugar syrup, which is very soft to feel, is juicy and non- chewy in consistency and can be swallowed without teeth pressure.
