Karachi Biscuits/Fruit Biscuits

Karachi Biscuits/Fruit Biscuits

Yes. This is the world famous Karachi Biscuits that I attempted to make. Believe me the end result was as tasty as the ones we buy from the Karachi bakery. Now no need for any of my friends to come from Hyderabad to taste these Melt in mouth Biscuits.

I found this recipe from my Favorite chef's website,Vahrehvah and adapted it to make the Karachi Biscuits.

AFP/Maida - 250 Grams
Custard Powder - 50 Grams
Sugar - 150 Grams
Butter - 150 Grams
Baking Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Milk Powder - 15 Grams
Vanilla Essence - Few Drops
Mixed Nuts and Dry Fruits - 150 Grams (See notes)
Milk - 2 Tablespoon


  1. In a bowl, cream butter,sugar and vanilla essence together. 
  2. In another bowl, mix Maida,Custard powder,milk powder,baking powder and mixed nuts and fruits.
  3. Now add the mixed dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and make a dough.
  4. If required add 2 tablespoon of milk to get the mixture to a dough consistency. 
  5. Divide the dough into equal sized balls and slightly flatten them
  6. Arrange them on a greased baking tray. Ensue that there is space between each of them as they will expand.
  7. Bake them in a oven for 10-15 minutes at 180C


  • I have used cashew,raisins,tutti fruit,pista,badam. The original Karachi Recipe usually comes with only Cashew and tutti frutti.
  • I have baked some of them for a little longer as I like them slightly on a overcooked side. so you see some of the cookies litle brown than the others.
