Thandai -- How to make Thandai


Step by step instructions of How to make Thandai

Thandai is a chilled almond flavoured beverage and acts as a coolant to the body during hot summers. It is also a North Indian dish mainly served during the festival of colors i.e. Holi. This cold drink mainly made with milk and almonds and also added flavours of saffron, pepper powder, rose essence or rose petals and some cashews.
Thandai is introduced to me by my cousin. She gets the thandai powder from the stores and mix it with cold milk and serve. But I prefer to make fresh one. So I surfed the internet and checked through with some North Indian friends who make it on their own at homes.  Got this recipe and tried my hand in that. Of course liked and loved by one and all. Especially by kids.
