I love Madatha Kaja sweet...Here in USA we dont usually get that in any stores. And cannot wait until i go to India to eat them..:) I thought of preparing it by myself.
Maida (All purpose Flour) 1 cup
Baking Soda 1/4 tbsp
Rice Flour 2 tbsp
Ghee 3 tbsp
Water 1/2 cup for syrup
Sugar 1 1/2 cups
oil 3 cups for frying
1. Mix all purpose flour, ghee, baking soda with some water and make it into a dough. Keep it aside for 10 to 15 mins.
2. Mix rice flour and ghee to make a paste and keep aside.
3. Make small equal balls out of the dough. Roll out one ball like a big thin chapathi. Apply rice flour paste over the chapati and spread evenly.Make an other thin chapathi and place it gently on the first rolled chapathi.Roll it like a mat and seal the edges firmly. Now cut the roll into pieces. Just press the pieces with ur hand to flatten
4. Heat up the oil on one side of the stove and also make the sugar syrup simultaneously. Boil the sugar until it reaches one thread consistency and switch off. Fry the kajas on a low flame until they turn light golden brown colour.Take out the kajas and drop them directly into the sugar syrup. Soak them for 20 to 30 mins in the syrup. Remove from the syrup and store in a box.
