History[edit]

Rasabali is originated from Kendrapara of Orissa.[1]

Preparation[edit]

It consists of deep fried flattened reddish brown patties of chhena (cottage cheese) that are soaked in thickened, sweetened milk.[3] 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.[4]
