Khaja is my absolute favourite Indian sweet. A sweet that I can’t stop eating. The wafery textured and melt in the mouth sweet is so addictive that you will not be able to resist eating more and more. My son was going nuts over this sweet dish. He was uncontrollable.
This delectable and appetizing dessert has crispy, crusty and brownish layers. It is so delicious with amazing texture and crispy layering full of sweetness and flavour from the cardamom sugar syrup.
