Madata khaja is a popular sweet dish in Andhra pradesh. It also known as kakinada kaja in Andhra pradesh. Kakinada is a district in Andhra which is popular for this sweet. I have tasted this sweet many times but never tried at home. watched so many videos and I tried this yummy sweet and turned out so perfect as shop sweets (not shape lol).
It tastes absolutely delicious. It is crunchy and juice. This is also my last recipe for this Diwali. So wanted to post easy and tasty recipe.making this madata kaja is so simple and easy.
