Who owns Rosogolla? West Bengal wins the misthi battle against Odisha

Who owns Rosogolla? West Bengal wins the misthi battle against Odisha”

Mamata Banerjee took to her Twitter account to share the new saying, "Sweet news for us all".

West Bengal on 14th November 2017 won the long bitter battle over Rosgulla as Geographical Indications (GI), a Chennai-based Registry announced that one of India's signature candies originated in the state and not Odisha. "Sweet news for us all".

The first committee would look into facts and evidence regarding the origin of Rasgulla in Odisha, the second would study the ground, based on which West Bengal is making its claim. West Bengal have several candies on similar lines to that of rosogolla.

Odisha had claimed that the sweetmeat originated from the Jagannath Temple in Puri, where it is a part of the religious rituals since the 12th century. This matter came to the headlines when the Odisha government talked of getting Geographical Identity (GI) tag for Rasgulla. Bengal had stated at the GI registrar office that the Rosogulla found in Odisha was of a different kind since it varied in the shape and the colour.

A GI tag is a sort of intellectual property identifier recognising the origin of a product.

In the Indian subcontinent and regions with South Asian diaspora, Rosogolla is a syrupy dessert popular prepared from Indian cottage cheese also known as Chenna or semolina dough.
