ABOUT Khari biscuits RECIPE

An evergreen accompaniment for chai, the Khari Biscuit or Puff Pastry Biscuit. Khari biscuit is a perfect snack for tea time. Biscuit is a term used for a variety of flour-based baked food products. Khari Biscuits or Puff Pastry Biscuits are typically unraised, flat and hard. Besides tea, you can serve these Khari biscuits with a spread of one of your favorite jams or dips. Puffy pastry biscuits are light and flaky and it is very easy to make these biscuits with minimum ingredients at your home. Sieve flour, salt and butter and mix them perfectly.

Fold one third of the long side of pastry to the middle forming two layers, then fold the remaining.
