  • Large bowl
  • baking/parchment paper


  • 180 gms All purpose flour / Maida
  • 65 gms Custard powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 113 gms Butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3/4-1 cup Tutti Frutti
  • 1/2 tsp Pineapple extract / Rose extract
  • 1-2 tbsp Milk


  • Combine and sift together all purpose flour, custard powder, cardamom powder and baking powder in a large bowl and keep it aside.
  • In another bowl, add the butter and sugar and cream it together with a hand whisk until soft and fluffy.
  • Then add the flour-custard powder mix into the butter and sugar and bring it together with a spatula. Add 1-2 tbsp of milk if required to make a soft dough.
  • Finally add the tutti frutti and cashew nuts and pineapple/ rose extract and mix it all together.
  • Now divide the dough into 2 portions and shape them into logs or any shape you desire.
  • Wrap them up in a cling film and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to firm it up. I refrigerated my dough overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Now open the cling wrap and cut each log into 1/4th inch thickness with a sharp knife.
  • Place them on the baking tray and bake them for 15-18 minutes or until the edges look firm and brown.
  • Cool the karachi biscuits completely and store them in an air tight container.
