History of Rasagola Dibasa

Rasagola Dibasa today

A dedicated day for Rasagola was proposed in 2015 to celebrate Odisha’s Rasagola story & glory. The world needs to be informed that Odisha is the birthplace of ‘Rasagola’. Niladri Bije of Rath Yatra has the Rasagola connection. That’s why Odias decided to celebrate it on the day of Niladri Bije each year.

Niladri Bije is a centuries-old Puri Jagannath Temple custom and the ritual of Lord Jagannath associated with the Ratha Jatra. It marks the entry of the Gods to the Temple after their trip to their aunt’s place. Rasagola works its magic to open the Temple’s gate for Lord Jagannath.

On this last day of the Ratha Jatra, Lord Jagannath is permitted to enter the Temple premises only after he offers Rasagolas to his wife, Goddess Lakshmi, to appease her for the slight of leaving her behind in the temple.

People throughout the state consider the Rasagolas prepared by the Kar brothers, the descendants of a local confectioner, Bikalananda Kar, in the town of Salepur, near Cuttack to be the best. Today this rasgulla famously named Bikali Kar Rasgulla is sold all over Odisha. Another variant of this dish that is made in the town of Pahal, located between the cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, is also very popular.

Why date of Rasagola Dibasa is not fixed?

Rasagola Dibasa’s date is not fixed. Because the date of Niladri Bije varies each year as per the tithi. Non-Odias write it as Rasagola Divas. The first Rasagola Dibasa was celebrated on July 30, 2015. Happy Rasagola Dibasa or Rasagola Day to all.
