The West Bengal government is celebrating Wednesday as “Rosogolla Dibas” to commemorate the first anniversary of the sweetmeat getting Geographical Indication (GI) tag as ‘West Bengal’s Rosogolla’.
Different varieties of rosogollas are being showcased in the stalls of the ‘Mishti Hub’, set up in one part of the Eco Park in New Town area to celebrate the day.
“Banglar Rosogolla got the GI tag last year on this day. We are observing this day as #RosogollaDibas at #MistiHub in #Kolkata to mark this sweet occasion. Everyone is welcome,” West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle today.
On November 14 last year, West Bengal received the GI tag for Rosogolla, ball-shaped dumplings of chhena and semolina dough, cooked in light syrup made of sugar.
The GI tag is a sign that identifies a product as originating from a particular place.
