Must have drink “Thandai” for Holi celebration.
Indian festivals like Holi and Shivratri are incomplete without this refreshing beverage called Thandai, which is extremely popular in North and Central India. The thandai drink is a beautiful combination of various kinds of nuts, saffron (called kesar or zaffran), milk, rose, a hint of spices and white poppy seeds (called khuskhus in Hindi). This beverage, when served chilled, has a magical effect on your tastebuds: with every sip you will feel that the subtle smell of rose and the saffron is calming you down and relaxing your senses, while the assorted nut paste mixed with just the right amount of spices add a sense of fullness and satisfaction. Such is the power of this wonderful festive beverage from India!
