Thandai Recipe

Thandai is a cold summer beverage made with grinding together nuts, milk, sugar, and black peppercorn


In North India, Thandai is a common beverage made with milk and nuts. It is supposed to have a cooling effect. I have given a general recipe here. The combination of nuts chosen is called Char Magaz. In reality, you can use any combination. You may also add saffron, rose, Khus, or Kewra.
