For Kaja Sweet
Atta – 1cup
Ghee(for frying) – 1 1/2 cup
Oil – 1 tsp
For syrup
Sugar – 1 cup
Water – 2 cups
Cardamom powder – 1/2 tsp
Add some water and 1 tsp oil to the maida and mix well to form a dough like chapathi dough. Let the dough sit aside for 10 min.
Roll the dough into flat circles using a rollpin. Using a knife cut the curved edges out first. Then cut diagonally across in straight lines so as to make diamond shapes. In the same way use rest of the dough and collect all the diamond shaped pieces in a plate.
Prepare the sugar syrup. Add 2 cups water to 1 cup sugar and let boil until the syrup consistency is just like that of Gulab Jamun’s. Turn off the stove before the consistency reaches 1 string, we don’t want the syrup too thick.

Heat ghee is a vessel, not to the point of smoking, but just hot enough for frying. Fry the diamond pieces on both sides and drain excess ghee on a paper towel. Now dip them in the sugar syrup for a minute, turning them on both sides and place them aside on a plate. finally serve it.
