Thandai is a cooling refreshing drink usually served in Northern parts during festival of Holi . It makes an invigorating drink for both young and old . It is a good idea to prepare some of this tasty flavorful masala powder and make a variety of desserts too . Adding just a tbsp or two of this powder to milk makes an instantly refreshing .This powder is also a great coolant for hot summer months and can be consumed in small quantities .
I have used this powder is several recipes most popular of them is the thandai cake which was simply delightful with unusual cool flavors . Thandai can also be prepared by soaking the spices, dry fruits and nuts used in recipe and making it into a paste , then add to boiling milk , that makes it even more richer as the flavors are completely infused in the drink . But if needs an instant drink , it is a god idea to keep a small stock of this powder at home and add to milk as needed.
