If you have not tasted famous Hyderabadi Karachi biscuits, you are missing out on one of the best in the world. But don’t worry I got you the perfect recipe that you can make at home to replicate those cookies. I found this recipe on Mullai’s blog and I didn’t alter anything. So let’s not waste time and let’s make these delicious cookies.
- Maida 1 1/4 cup
- Cashew powder 1/4 cup
- Butter 1/2 cup or 1 stick
- Salt a pinch (Skip this if you are using salted butter)
- Powdered Sugar 1/2 cup
- Baking powder 1/4 tsp
- Broken Cashews 1/4 cup (I used less because my daughter doesn’t like nuts so much)
Let’s see how to make it:
- Make sure Butter is at room temperature.
- Cream the butter along with salt, sugar and baking powder.
- Combine to make it paste like consistency.
- Add in the powdered cashews and maida.
- Gather to form a soft dough. Dough should be soft but not sticky.
- Dust a cutting board with maida and start rolling out the dough. Even out to form a thick rectangle.
- Sprinkle the broken cashews over it to spread evenly and run your rolling pin over to make it stick to the dough.
- I spread it only on half of them because my daughter doesn’t like nuts.
- Preheat your oven to 350 F.
- Cut the dough into mini squares.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the squares leaving some space between each piece.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes at 350 F in the middle rack of your oven.
- When the base starts to brown, the cookie is done.
- Cool completely and store in a box.
As usual, don’t forget to leave me a feedback once you try it. Always remember everything is good in moderation.
