Thandai is a traditional drink which is mainly served on the occasion of Holi and also during Shivratri with a hint of Bhaang in it. 😉 This drink has many benefits as it is prepared with dry nuts, whole spices, saffron, and milk. A perfect refreshing drink for summers.
There is readymade Thandai powder available in the market but to avoid any preservatives and artificial colors or flavors I made at home with all the ingredients available easily at home. Make this delicious Thandai and serve your family, friends, and guests this Holi. Thandai is best served chilled so make sure you refrigerate it for at least 4-5hrs before serving.
