Khaja (Sweet Dish)-- Happy Diwali

Khaja, is a delicious and crispy sweet dish. I learnt this recipe from my friend Sridevi. I would like to dedicate this recipe to her and wanna thanks her for teaching me the same. This desert has amazing texture i.e crispy layering with full of sweetness from sugar syrup. So this is the perfect recipe to complete Diwali.
I wish all my friends a Happy Diwali...May this festival of lights bring more prosperity and happiness in everyone's lives.


1 Cup All Purpose Flour/Maida
2 tbsp  warm Ghee/Butter
¼ tsp Salt
½ Cup Water
Pinch of Baking Soda
Pinch of Baking Powder
½ tsp Cardamom Powder
Oil to Deep Fry

 1 Cup Water
2 Cup Sugar


1) Take a big bowl, add in flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and oil. Rub well with your fingers. Kneed a smooth dough with the help of water. Cover and let the dough rest for half an hour.

2) For the Syrup heat up the water and sugar on medium flame to make syrup. Boil the syrup and let it reduce to half. Switch off the flame and let it rest covered to use it a bit warm.

3) Preheat oil till hot to fry. Divide the dough in three equal parts and roll the dough in a big and thin chapati. Apply ghee on one side of all chapati's then sprinkle dry flour over applied ghee. Now stack one chapati over another. 

4) Now roll the chapati stack from one end to another like we did for making pinwheels. Now cut an inch thick through out the roll. The roll will look like a big rope and we have to cut that an inch thick. 

5) Now take each part and roll once over each part a bit with help of rolling pin. Now fry them on medium low flame till they turn golden brown in color.

6) Once they are fried, Dip them in sugar syrup and coat them properly. Now they are ready...
