One day during fast in Ramadan, I fell asleep before Maghrib and woke up almost half an hour after Maghrib to break my fast. Did this delay invalidate my fast and I have to make qaza only or qaza and kaffarah both.

It is mustahab to do iftar as soon as the sun sets. The sawm was not invalid due to delay.
وفى البدائع: ويسن تعجيل الافطار اذا غربت الشمس هكذا روى عن ابى حنيفة – (2/105)
وفى نورالايضاح: ويستحب له ثلاثة (1) السحور (2) تاخيره (3) تعجيل الافطار فى غير يوم الغيم .

Allah knows Best!
