Madatha Kaja/ Kakinada Kaja

The very mention of the name Kaja reminds everyone of Kakinada kaja, this crispy, cylindrical flaky, sticky sweet treat is popular not only across Andhra Pradesh but also across the nation......



Ingredients:
All purpose flour/Maida - 2 cups
Sugar - 2cups
Rice Flour - 3 tsp
Ghee - 3tsp
Soda bi carb. - 2 pinches
Oil for deep frying




Procedure :

  • Take maida/flour in a bowl, add ghee, baking powder to the maida/ flour, add sufficient water to make a dough, knead well. The dough should be like puri or chapathi dough. Pinch the dough, roll the dough into big chapathi, and keep it aside, and roll two more chapathies. Mix rice flour and ghee in to a paste, lightly smear this paste on the chapathi, place another chapathi on top of it and again smear the paste on chapati and place another chapathi(it should be stack of 3 chapathies), and roll it like a mat and cut it into 1''pieces, roll them little, lengthwise. Keep aside. Now make a sugar syrup with one string consistency. Keep aside. Heat oil and deep fry the kajas and drop them into the sugar syrup. Let the kaja absorb the syrup for a while. Remove from the syrup and keep aside. Repeat the process for the remaining kajas. Once again drop the kajas in the sugar syrup so that they nicely absorb the sugar syrup. Remove from the syrup..........store them in the container, they can be stored for 15days.

This flaky Kakinada Kaja is going to "Speciality Food Event" hosted by Simple Indian Food-An Easy Cooking Blog.
