We start of our Holi special with traditional north India drink Thandai. Thandai is chilled flavoured beverage which taste terrific when it’s hot. The use of dry fruits and saffron in this drink just elevate its taste completely. Enjoy the festival of colours with this amazing cool and refreshing Thandai.

2 tablespoon muskmelon seeds
2 table spoon poppyseeds
2 tablespoon fennel seeds
1 small cup sugar
1 tablespoon cardamom powder
1 tablespoon custard powder 
1 pinch saffron

1.       Heat milk by keeping it on low flame.
2.       In a bowl take little water and mix custard powder properly.
3.       Once the milk is boiled properly add custard powder in it and boil the milk.
4.       Once the milk is boiled keep it on low flame for 10 minutes. After that keep it aside to cool down.
5.       Take a mixer grinder and make powder of all the dry fruits, poppy seeds, fennel seed & muskmelon seeds.
6.       When the milk is cold add sugar and powder that you have made in it and mix it properly.

  1. Hello there Meera

    You have a great blog with some great recipes and a great story. I am reaching out to you from a social platform for Indian/Desi food lovers. It is a community of About 400 food bloggers with thousands of recipes and counting. You might find some fellow bloggers from India and abroad as well on our platform. It is developed by someone like you who is a Indian mom/wife/daughter who is passionate about technology and in need of new recipes. This platform is aimed at addressing the love for Indian food by creating:

    > A one stop shop for all Indian food related information.
    > Create a democratic platform for home cooks to get noticed, appreciated and rewarded.
    > Share the creative ways people are exploring Indian food - In fact going by number of Indian food blogs it’s quite evident that the real fun in Indian food is happening in the kitchens of Indian homes and not in star restaurants & cooking schools. Therefore, we also want this to be a platform for home cooks to get together and share ideas. We believe this platform would truly democratize the Indian food blogger community and give an equal opportunity for everyone to succeed.

    The current services are just a beginning and we will be adding additional functionalities that will truly make this a global platform for Indian food.

    We hope you like what we are presenting and would join our growing community of Indian food lovers. Don’t wait and join today. Our facebook page is frequently updated with food related news and some exciting recipes so stay connected via facebook as well.
