Rasabali (Oriya: ରସାବଳି, IAST: Rasābaḷi) is a sweet dish from Orissa, India. Rasabali is offered to Baladevjew, and originated in the Baladevjew Temple of Kendrapara. It is one of the Chapana bhoga of Jagannath temple.
It consists of deep fried flattened reddish brown patties of chhena (cottage cheese) that are soaked in thickened, sweetened milk. Flattening the chhena into palm-sized patties is done in order to allow them to absorb the milk more readily. The thickened milk is also usually lightly seasoned with crushed cardamoms.
