A delicious drink with milk flavored with nuts, seeds and spices. The traditional drink for Holi - the festival of colors.
If using raw milk, boil the whole milk and add the ingredients to it. This will require more cooling time. Let the milk come to room temperature, then refrigerate it.
If you prefer, you can also boil the whole milk and then add Thandai powder, saffron, sugar to it.
Some people like to soak the nuts and poppy seeds before grinding them to a paste. I prefer the powder as it is easier to store. Transfer it to an airtight container and use for a couple of months.
If you have, add 2 tbsp of dried rose petals when making the powder.
If you want a stronger yellow color for the Thandai, you can add yellow food color or much more saffron.
