ABOUT THANDAI POWDER
Thandai powder is excellent for flavouring milk and even sweets. One beverage produced for the Holi occasion is called thandai. This is one of the nutritious flavors you may choose for children. They’ll adore it, I have no doubt.
In this recipe, I did not use poppy seeds, but if you choose, you can add 1 tsp of poppy seeds when grinding the spices.
THANDAI POWDER INGREDIENTS
Nuts: For the production of thandai powder, cashews, almonds, pistachios, and melon seeds are used. Almonds can be used either blanched or unblanched.
Spices: The primary ingredients that give thandai powder its fantastic flavour are spices. Thandai powder is made with spices including cardamom, fennel seeds, saffron, and black pepper. Although I have mentioned using dried rose petals in Method 2, you can omit them if you don’t have any on hand.
Sweetner: In this recipe, I’ve used white sugar, which is the most typical ingredient in thandai and thandai mix. However, you can also use brown sugar, cane sugar, jaggery powder, etc.
