    Thandai is one of the popular summer drink in Maharashtra. It is the special beverage especially made on Mahasivaratri & Holi Festival. I tasted this awesome drink in one of my friend’s house who is a Maharashtrian, I got this recipe from her and I loved this chill and flavorful drink especially during hot day. The rich flavor of fennel seeds and peppercorns along with nuts gives a nice taste to the drink.

    Its also called as Sardai, literally translates to coolant or cold in Hindi. It is a refreshing drink that has a cooling effect and gives instant energy in scorching Indian summers. It contains various cooling nuts and spices like almonds, fennel seeds, magaz (kernel of Watermelon seeds), cardamom, khus khus (poppy seeds) etc. A generous pinch of Saffron threads provides it a distinctive taste & colour. Rose petals, pepper, cashew nuts are other items that are many times added to it. It is also rich in calcium & vitamins.

    Try this flavor rich Thandai and I m sure you will like this drink for this hot summer!

    Notes:

    1. I used Dry Rose Petals. You can substitute with 4-5 drops of Rose Essence or 2 Teaspoon Rose Water
    2. Traditionally Melon Seeds are also along with nuts and rose petals. But if we can’t get it, we can skip
    3. Use more peppercorns and fennel seeds for a stronger flavor in thandai.
