Thandai is a refreshing summer drink which is especially prepared during Holi, which is an Indian festival. It’s a tradition as every one prepares Thandai during Holi and serves it to their guests and family members.

Thandai is made of Milk and a Mixture of spices known as “Thandai Masala”. Now-a-days, you can find ready made Thandai Masala in market, but to give it a personal touch, I decided to make it at home. It’s really easy to make and you can store in air tight containers.
