Description

Khaja is a multi-layered sweet of Kakinada, a place in Andhra Pradesh. It is believed that the Nizams introduced this sweet to Andhra. Each layer of the sweet just melts in the mouth and the coated sugar syrup is just perfect with each bite. It is prepared on special festive occasions. Roll khaja is a stuffed variation of the original khaja.
