Thandai, one of the famous North Indian drinks consumed during summers. From the name itself, we can make out that it acts as a coolant. That is the reason it is consumed in summers. When hot dry winds make our life miserable, a sip of this elixir gives us solace.
The various ingredient in it like almonds, poppy seeds, fennel seeds, watermelon & Pumpkin seeds, rose, saffron, milk etc have plenty of health benefits, making thandai a completely healthy drink.
Thandai is specially made during Maha Shivratri and Holi with the addition of bhang, an intoxicating herb (optional). During Maha Shivratri, it is offered as a Prasad to Lord Shiva.
Try this thandai recipe (of course without bhang?) and enjoy your holi with lots of colors.
