Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival that honours the bond between siblings. The festival is marked by rituals that include tying of a sacred thread by sisters on their brothers' wrists. The ritual signifies a protective relationship between the siblings. The festival is celebrated by Hindus around the world, particularly in India and South Asia. It is celebrated on the last day of the Hindu lunar month of Shraavan, which typically falls in August. Raksha bandhan, or Rakhi as it is also known, is marked by distribution of a variety of sweets and sweet meats. Some of the customary sweets eaten on Rakhi include ghewar and an assortment of barfis.

Sisters offer sweets to their brothers while tying Rakhis to them, and in return brothers offer gifts or money to their sisters. Sweets might be prepared at home to mark the festival. One unique sweet that you may prepare on the occasion of Raksha bandhan is this unique mango rasgulla. The spongy milk sweet is typically consumed during a number of Indian festivals, including Holi and Diwali. The syrupy dessert is prepared by moulding a rich dough of chhena or khoya with semolina (or suji) into soft rounds and then dunking them in flavourful sugar syrup. This mango-flavoured sweet is prepared by stuffing chhena rounds with ripe mango chunks and then cooking them in mango syrup until fluffy.
