How to make Mitha Khaja:

  • Take a bowl and mix plain flour, cardamom powder and ghee in it. Knead it into firm but flexible dough using jaggery water.
  • Now, break the dough into 20 parts kneading each part with the palm.
  • Proceed with rolling each part into 4 rounds and then making tiny slits on both sides with knife or fork, on each rolled part.
  • Now, put each part on a clean cloth and keep it aside for an hour to let it dry a bit.
  • Take a heavy bottomed pan and heat ghee in it. Fry each part on simmer flame till it turns golden in color.
