Famous Karachi fruit biscuits
Karachi fruit biscuits sounds like to be coming straight from Karachi. However the famous Karachi fruit biscuits are a famous product of Hyderabad based Karachi Bakery. This bakery is highly famous not only for his Fruit Biscuits, but also for its Plum Cake. The bakery now has its presence in Mumbai and Dubai too. I know people die for Karachi bakery biscuits but we never really tried buying from nearby stores suspecting the authenticity of the biscuits.
When I found these Karachi Biscuits on Amazon I decided to buy and treat my family with this delicacy. But you know what, nothing can beat the aroma and flavour a freshly baked cookie. After tasting the cookies that I bought, I understood why people are crazy about these Karachi fruit biscuits. The blissful experience of a fruit biscuit is heavenly. Next thing was to experiment and bake at home.
Festive season and Tutti Frutti Karachi Biscuits
This time on Diwali, I decided to greet friends and family with Tutti Fruity cookies and also include them for my gift hampers. I had earlier bought Karachi Biscuits from Amazon, but it took 5-6 days for me to get the delivery. Since I did not have the time to wait, I decided to bake these fruit biscuits at home. To fill my gift hampers with a little variety I also made chocolate chip cookies which adds up to the sweet theme of Diwali.
What is Tutti Frutti?
Tutti Frutti is a candied fruit made of papaya. It is easily available in the market. You will see different color of Tutti Frutti available in the market and that is because of addition of different food colors. If you don’t have or do not like tutti frutti then you can use chopped cranberries or raisins.
Karachi Biscuits Recipe
The Karachi Biscuits recipe is a straight forward and a quick recipe. The melt-in-mouth characteristic of these biscuits makes them irresistible. Be careful with the quality of ingredients so these biscuits stay crunchy for a longer time. Like any other baked product the aroma of your baked goodie will fade in about 30 days. You must decide the quantity you are going to bake and how long you would like to preserve them for.
