If you ever thought that Karachi fruit biscuits come straight from Karachi, then you must know that they come from the city of Nizams, Hyderabad. The famous Karachi bakery is in Hyderabad and along with many other items, Karachi fruit biscuits is their hot selling biscuits.
The popularity of these melt-in-mouth Karachi biscuits is not just limited to Hyderabad. Their plum cakes and Karachi biscuits are loved in each part of India and some parts of outside India as well.
When I found these on Amazon I decided to buy and treat my family with this delicacy. Ordered, got the delivery, opened the pack and treated me. But something was missing. Yes, that aroma and flavor of freshly baked cookies.

Baked product tends to lose its freshness, aroma, and taste with time. For cookies, no longer than 2-3 weeks. And a cookie made in Hyderabad and I am buying in Pune, 2 weeks are little less to complete the entire supply chain process.
The alternative was to bake at home. And Diwali time could not have been a better time to bake the sinful Karachi fruit biscuits.
