Kaja is a traditional sweet dish from Kakinada district in the state of Andra Pradesh. Traditionally all-purpose flour dough is rolled thin, cut into pieces, flattened and fried in medium hot oil and dropped in cardamom flavoured sugar syrup to become juicy. The outer crisp layers and the inner soft juicy layers are delectable to the eyes and tongue.
