FLOWER KAJA - DIWALI RECIPES



Andhra pradesh  especially East godavari district is fmaous for kajas. Tapeswaram kaja and kakinada kaja are very populour not only over India but all over the world. Here i came out with one of the easiest and tasty kaja i.e, flower kaja.  I have adapted this recipe from zee telugu's "mee inti vanta" program which came out perfectly.
The  recipe of flower kaja goes here:

INGREDIENTS

Maida/Flour - 500gms

Ghee - 200 gms

Sugar - 300gms

Cooking soda - 1/2tsp

Illachi powder

METHOD

  • Take sugar into a vessel. Add Water and make sugar syrup  with sugar consistency.
  • Add ilachi powder and keep it a side.
  • Take maida in to a bowl
  • Add cooking soda.
  • Heat ghee and add it to maida.
  • Add some water and make it to a smooth dough. this dough should be like the dough we make for chppathi.

  • Divide into small portions.

  • Make chappathi.

  • Fold the chappathi to half.

  • Again fold it to half to make a triangle.

  • Now bring together the edges of the traingle and press in the middle to make the flower shape.

  • Heat oil in a pan. The oil shouldn't be too hot.
  • Now fry the prepared flowers on the low flame.Increase the flame when the kajas float.
  • Fry till golden brown.

  • Add these kajas in the sugar syrup and wait till they absorb the syrup. this may take for 10- 15 mins.

Remove from the syrup and serve.
