Baked Rasagola

The Delicious Baked Rasagola or Poda Rasagola from Chhapan Bhog, Bhubaneswar

Baked Rasagola (Odia: ପୋଡ଼ା ରସଗୋଲା) is a variation of the traditional Indian sweet dish, Rasagola. The dish is made by baking rasagola, which is a small, round dumpling made of chhena and semolina dough, instead of the traditional method of boiling them in sugar syrup. The baking process gives the rasagola a slightly different texture and flavor, compared to the traditional version.

The traditional Rasagola is a popular sweet dish from the Indian state of Odisha, and it is said to have originated in the city of Puri. It is made by kneading chhena, a type of cottage cheese, with semolina, and shaping the dough into small, round dumplings. These dumplings are then boiled in a sugar syrup and served as a dessert.

The baked version of Rasagola is made by shaping the dough into small round dumplings, then they are put in an oven and baked. The baking process gives a slightly different texture, it becomes crispy on the outside while remaining soft on the inside, and it also gives a different taste profile. The syrup is prepared separately and is poured on top of the baked rasagolas after they are taken out of the oven.
