Khari Biscuits or Puff Biscuits


As I was making these biscuits, all fond memories came to my mind. When I was young and stayed in a village in Mumbai which is now a concrete jungle, twice a week the biscuit man would come to our compound with a big aluminum box on his head and sell variety of biscuits. But the first thing we would tell our mother is to pick these biscuits for us. I simply loved these khari biscuits, as an accompaniment to afternoon chai.

These are all time favorite of my hubby and daughter too. If I buy a 1/2 kg packet these get over in 2 to 3 days.

Puffed salted biscuits 
often known as Khari biscuits,are a common hit as a tea-time snack. They are also known as namkeen biscuits as they are crispy, flaky, fluffy, salty and mouth-melting. They are baked calorie-rich biscuits, which are made using all purpose flour. Several layers of dough are kept on each other with a layer of ghee or vanaspati in between each layer.Then they are baked to perfection. These khari biscuits are perfect accompaniment for tea/coffee.


Ingredients
1 sheet Puff Pastry dough

Method

Pre-heat oven to 200° C and line a baking tray with butter paper.
Lay out the puff pastry sheet onto it a board.  Cut the dough into little rectangles about 2″x 1/2″ or so, using a pizza cutter. You can also twist the pastry rectangles to give them a different look.
Lay out the rectangles onto the lined tray.
Bake for about 15 to 17 minutes, until golden brown and flaky. Check them after 15 minutes or they will get too brown and the taste changes.  Enjoy them with a cup of chai.
