Homemade Khari Biscuits

Khari is a light and fluffy biscuit that is made from flour and butter and baked until golden and crunchy. They can be made plain or sprinkled with spices for extra flavor. Snacks like veg puffs, eggless cakes and biscuits are often served in Indian homes with chai. These Homemade Khari Biscuits make for the perfect dippers with a good cup of chai.Homemade Khari Biscuits

I love how easy it is to make Homemade Khari Biscuits with pre-made puff pastry sheets. For these Khari biscuits I used Kawan’s Puff Pastry block. Kawan Puff Pastry blocks are perfect for whip up quick snacks and treats. There is always a package in my refrigerator!

Here are some tips to making the best homemade Khari Biscuit:

  • The puff pastry should be thawed but still cold so if puffs up nicely.
  • Brushing with milk or egg wash helps with two things: brown the pastry and helps the spices stick
  • Cool the puff pastry completely before storing else they will not retain the crunchy texture traditional Khari has.
  • Some delicious variations include roasted ajwain, chaat masala, salt + pepper, cardamom + sugar
  • When it comes to salt, I like to flaky sea salt or kosher salt to season these.
