Tutti Frutti Biscuits | Hyderabad Karachi Bakery Style | Diwali Special

Hello Everyone.

Wishing all of you a Very Happy, Joyous and Safe Diwali.

If you have ever been to Hyderabad, or if you have relatives there, you must have tried these Fruit biscuits from the very famous *Karachi Bakery*. I lived in Hyderabad for 2 years and one of the best things I had, was these Fruit Biscuits. Oh trust me, these are the best biscuits I have ever tasted in my life. *Nom-Nom*- Gulps down with Milk.

Fruit Biscuits from the very famous Karachi Bakery are Oh-So-Yum, Soft, Crumbly and have these tutti-frutti candied fruits inside. With every bite you can actually taste these candied fruits and it melts in your mouth. I can’t describe how yum these are. Every time I used to visit my home-town, I used to get at-least 2-3 boxes of them. But since I left Hyderabad, I was missing them.

But one fine day I bumped into a post by Café Garima and OMG- I was jumping and screaming with joy. She has re-created the exact same recipe and I was just drooling over her blog post. That same day I have decided that I am gonna try them no matter what.

And Tadaaaaaa! Here I am with my post. Yay *Dances*

I am so so grateful and thankful to Garima for sharing this recipe. Garima Ma’am thank u so so much from the bottom of my heart. Here is the link of her recipe : Café Garima’s Recipe – Do check. She is my inspiration and her website is amazing.

Lets get down to some non serious Baking 😉

The recipe is very simple, easy and includes very less ingredients. The trick is to follow the measurements and the process. If you follow it word-to-word, I am sure, you will nail it too. No Baking Powder No Baking soda is the Key!

Instructions
  1. Sieve the flour/maida.
  2. Leave the butter out on the counter till it is soft. Do not melt it. We need the butter soft, but not melted. The key is to use soft butter and not melted one.
  3. In a big mixing bowl- take Softened butter and Powdered Sugar. Blend it with the help of a double beater till light and creamy. It takes approx. 2-5 minutes.
  4. Now add Vanilla essence + Cardamom powder + Tutti frutti/ Candied fruits.
  5. Mix it well with the help of beater.
  6. Now slowly add the flour and mix it with the help of your fingers. Incorporate the butter into the flour.
  7. Gently bring the dough together. Do not knead!
  8. Take a cling roll, place the dough into it. Roll the cling roll tightly and secure it with rubber bands at the side.
  9. Refrigerate it for an hour.
  10. After an hour, take out the cling roll, remove the cling paper.
  11. Cut it into slices about half-inch thick
  12. Preheat the Microwave at 180 degree in Convection for 5 minutes
  13. Arrange biscuits in a Microwave tray. Maintain distance between them because they expand when bake.
  14. Bake them in convection for about 14 minutes at 180 degrees.
  15. When the bottom of the cookies begins to brown, they are done. They will be soft in the middle, but will firm up on cooling.
  16. Cool them down and store them in air-tight jars
  17. Crumbly-Soft-Yummy Fruit biscuits are ready to serve
  18. Serve it with Warm milk or a nice cup of tea.
Recipe Notes

Notes :

  1. Baking is no rocket science. The trick is accurate measurements and the process.
  2. Use measurement cups to measure ingredients
  3. Micro-wave temperature can vary from micro-wave to micro-wave, keep an eye while baking.

Happy Cooking & Happy Baking

Happy Diwali everyone 🙂
