Madhatha Kaja

Ingredients to make Madhatha Kaja

  • 2 cups maida
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup water
  • A pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons rice flour mixed with 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp lemon juice

How to make Madhatha Kaja

  1. Place all purpose flour/maida in a bowl, add the salt and mix well. Also warm the ghee and add it to the flour, mix well to combine.
  2. Slowly add little water at a time to make a soft dough, like a chapatti dough. Cover and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile combine the sugar, water and lemon juice in a bowl. Place it on a low flame and let it boil for about 20 minutes. (Note that we want a light syrup, so if you boil it longer, a string consistency might develop and crystallize.)
  4. Heat the oil in a pan.
  5. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts, sprinkle some flour onto the work surface and roll each ball till they are very thin. Apply a little of the ghee and rice flour mixture over each disc and stack them up.
  6. Now, tightly roll them to form a cylinder and cut them horizontally into 1 inch pieces. Slightly flatten these pieces like shown in the images.
  7. Fry these in the hot oil on a medium flame. (The medium heat will help the khaja to cook evenly.)
  8. Once the khajas turn golden brown in colour, transfer and soak them in the sugar syrup for about 10 minutes. Remove and arrange in a wide plate. Follow this process for the rest of the khajas.
  9. You can drizzle the left over sugar syrup over the khajas.
  10. Serve them hot to enjoy!
