Hello everyone! Thanks to Blogchatter every year many bloggers get a chance to publish their ebooks and I got to read this amazing ebook published by Anita Sabat and I choose to review her ebook named as “RASAGOLA DIBASA”. She is a writer and social worker and has published varied posts on her website www.anitaexplorer.com.
A little about her book:
The ‘king of sweets’, Rasagola, is as old as the Ratha Yatra. This publication ‘Rasagola Dibasa – Odisha Celebrates a Day For Rasagola (Rasgulla)’ is a sincere attempt to share about Odisha’s centuries-old sweet-dish Rasagola; continuing tradition, Niladri Bije; and the online celebration of #RasagolaDibasa. This eBook endeavours to provide correct information and to create awareness.
Being a food blogger myself and a big foodie I was very much tempted by the title of this book Rasagola Dibasa. I was not disappointed at all. Through this book Anita has described the history of rasagola and how it was actually invented in Odisha. The main concept of the book is to make people aware about the history of Niladri Bije- Rath Yatra of Shree Jagannatha Puri and the sweet war of Rasagola that took place between Odisha and West Bengal.
Her book is backed up with research, ancient texts and facts which she has all quoted at the right places. Through her book she has in very simple language explained that how Rasagola is as old as the Rath Yatra of Shree Jagannatha Puri and that Rasagola was actually offered to the deity as a bhog.
What I found very interesting and captivating was that in Odisha they even celebrate Rasagola day i.e. Rasagola Dibasa and Anita has very beautifully captured the essence of the celebration by describing how it celebrated, songs that are made on Rasagola and the relentless efforts by her and many others in trying to make Rasagola Dibasa a memorable day to make people aware of the grand history of rasagola. For me this book has been a treasure trunk of knowledge on Rasagola and its origins.
I highly recommend every one should read “RASAGOLA DIBASA” and to understand this sweet chenna dish and its even sweeter story.
