How To make Madatha Kaja? | Instant Madatha Kaja Recipe

Masatha Khajaa is a popular Indian sweet that is often made during festivals or special occasions. It is a layered dessert made with flour, ghee, sugar, and cardamom powder. The following recipe makes around 20-25 pieces and takes approximately 1 hour to prepare.

Here is the list of step to make Madatha Kaja at homeĀ 


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/2 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • Oil for frying
  • Silver leaf (optional)


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flour and ghee. Mix well until the ghee is evenly distributed throughout the flour. The mixture should resemble coarse crumbs.
  • Slowly add water to the mixture, a little at a time, while kneading the dough. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and pliable. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll out each part into a thin, rectangular shape. Cut each rectangle into 5-6 equal-sized strips using a knife or a pizza cutter.
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the strips of dough, a few at a time, and fry them until they turn golden brown. Remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • In a separate pan, add sugar and 1/2 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a boil and let it simmer until it becomes a thick syrup. Add cardamom powder to the syrup and mix well.
  • Dip the fried dough strips in the sugar syrup, one at a time, and coat them well. Place the coated strips on a serving dish and repeat the process until all the strips are coated with the sugar syrup.
  • Allow the Masatha Khajaa to cool and then garnish with silver leaf (optional).


  • It is important to knead the dough well to ensure that the Masatha Khajaa turns out crispy.
  • While frying the dough strips, make sure the oil is not too hot, as this can cause the Masatha Khajaa to burn.
  • The sugar syrup should be of a thick consistency. If it is too thin, the Masatha Khajaa will not coat properly.
  • You can adjust the amount of cardamom powder according to your taste preference.
  • Masatha Khajaa is a delicious sweet that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week, making it a great dessert to make ahead of time for parties or gatherings. Give this recipe a try and impress your guests with your culinary skills!
