Karachi sweet mart in the Camp area of Pune is a fine place to buy readily available Karachi fruit biscuits. The store has good quality of fruit biscuits available but I found it overpriced. I being a baker myself have this nick of evaluating the price.
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 earlier had 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 raw 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 to the raw papaya. If you don’t have or do not like tutti frutti then you can use chopped cranberries or raisins.

Place a plastic wrap on your working counter and place the dough on it.
Shape the dough into a log shape.
Wrap it well and keep it in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
