  • Exotic Eggless Karachi Biscuits | Hyderabadi Karachi Biscuits
April 3, 2021

Eggless Karachi Biscuits are Hyderabad’s famous biscuits. The Karachi Bakery in Hyderabad is world-famous for its various cookies and bakery products but eggless Karachi biscuits are something that made this bakery popular.

I still remember the days when any known in the family used to travel to Hyderabad and my only request was to get a pack of Karachi biscuits for me.

Exotic Eggless Karachi Biscuits

Never in my dream I thought, I would be baking these amazing cookies in my kitchen. The rich buttery flavor and lots of tutti frutti make these biscuits everyone’s favorite. 

If you don’t know what is tutti frutti then let me tell you, it’s candied papaya. I have a very popular recipe on my blog of Tutti Frutti cookies. You should try that too.

Hyderabad Karachi Biscuits

In a bowl take butter and sugar. Start mixing it. You can mix it with a hand or can use a whisker. We are supposed to mix until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Add All-Purpose Flour, Custard Powder and Baking Powder to the whisked butter mixture. Mix everything to bind it. Do not knead it like a dough but combine everything with a soft hand until it comes together. 

For these cookies, I have used vanilla flavored custard powder. Any other flavor will spoil the taste of the cookies.

To enhance the flavor of the cookies, I have added ¼ tsp of Ossoro’s Karachi Biscuit flavor. Along with it, add 2 tbsp of milk. If you feel the dough is soft enough, skip adding milk.

Shape the dough into a log and cover it in cling wrap. Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until butter sets.

After 30 minutes of resting, take the dough out from the refrigerator and slice the cookies out of it. Keep the thickness of each slice to be ½ inch.

These cookies will spread in the oven so if you are going to keep the thickness less than ½ inch then these will be too crispy.

Arrange all the sliced cookies on a baking tray by leaving some space in-between. Bake these in a preheated oven at 180 C for 12-15 minutes.

The corners of the cookies will turn golden. It’s a sign that cookies are baked.

Once the Eggless Karachi biscuits are baked, take the tray out from the oven and let the cookies rest of the tray itself. These will be too tender to lift. So 10 minutes of resting is good.

These cookies stay good for 3 weeks.
