Homemade Thandai 

Made on festival of holi

Made with simple ingredients

Perfect blend of nuts & spices

Main Ingredients


Fennel seeds

Poppy seeds

Melon seeds


Rose petals

Step 1

First blanch the almonds. Soak them overnight or soak in hot water for 15-30 minutes. Then peel the skin.

Transfer the almonds to a blender along with all ingredients for Thandai paste and make a fine paste.

Step 2

Add milk as needed to make a smooth paste or syrup.

Step 3

Add milk to a heavy bottom pan on medium-high heat, and bring to a gentle boil. Add saffron strands to the milk, while it is heating.

Step 4

Reduce the heat to low, then mix in the thandai paste and sugar. Then add in the rose water. Use a whisk to mix the thandai with the milk. Take off heat.

Step 5

Let this rest for at least 30 minutes or you can let it cool, and refrigerate it overnight. This helps for the milk to soak in all wonderful flavors.

Step 6

Strain the thandai. Make sure to take out all the milk from the sieve by pressing the remains.

Step 6

Thandai is ready!
