Mini Kaaja


We need:


Maida/ all purpose flour  1 cup
Ghee/ butter  1/4 cup
Oil for deep frying
Sugar 1 cup
Water 3/4 cup
Baking powder 1sp
Honey 3sps


Method:


Add baking powder and ghee to maida and mix well.
Now add water to make a smooth dough as chapati dough.
Keep aside for 15minutes.
Meanwhile add water to sugar and make sugar syrup.
Syrup has to be little thicker than the gulab jamun syrup.
Once the syrup is done switch off stove and add honey.
Mix well.
Heat oil for deep frying.
Divide the dough to 2 parts and make a thin chapati with both of them as.
Dont worry if its going to be a large one.
Now apply little ghee or butter on top of 1 chapati and place the other chapati on top of it.
Same way apply ghee on the chapati and roll the chapati slowly.
Make sure there is no gap between when rolling.
Now cut small pieces with knife and keep aside.
Using roller pin flatten the pieces  and deep fry till crisp and brown.
Add the fried kaaja's directly into the syrup.
Let them rest in syrup for about 10minutes.
Remove and serve.
Can store these for a week's time.
