Chhena Gaja (Oriya: ଛେନାଗଜା) is a sweet dish from Orissa, India. Unlike some other popular chhena-based Oriya desserts, such as Rasagolla, which have spread throughout India, the Chhena Gaja remains largely popular within the state itself.
Although the ingredients of Chhena Gaja are essentially the same as that of Rasagolla and Chhenna Poda, the dishes could not differ more in taste.
Chhena gajas are prepared by combining chhena, similar to cottage cheese, and sooji (semolina), and kneading the dough thoroughly. Water is squeezed out from the mixture, which is then dried briefly until it acquires the right consistency. It is then molded into palm-sized rectangular shapes (Gajas), boiled, and deep fried in oil. The fried gajas are coated with a sugary syrup before being served. Sometimes, the gajas are then allowed to dry a little more, in which case the sugar may occasionally crystallize on in the surface.
