Holi is just around the corner, and preparations for this colourful festival are at an all-time high, especially after two years of Covid. To make Holi a memorable occasion, we cook gujiya, kachori, dahi bhalla, jalebi, and other sweet and savoury food items. The soul-satisfying beverages round out the meal. The mere mention of soul-soothing drinks conjures up images of thandai. Thandai is a delightful combination of dry fruit paste soaked in milk and fresh fruits on top.

Ingredients to prepare Holi Special Ice Tea Thandai
How to make Holi ice tea thandai
1. Heat water and add some tea bags to absorb the flavour in a flask.
2. Mix in 14, almonds, Khus-Khus, fennel seeds, and cardamom.
3. To taste, season with black pepper and crushed sugar.
4. Refrigerate it, add a lot of ice, and filter it before serving.
5. scatter a few saffron strands over the drink to add flavour and colour.
There are several other flavours of Thandai you can try this Holi-
Although mangoes have not graced our markets as of yet, but you can always use their zest to add some flavours. Simply combine freshly diced mangoes/flavour and skimmed milk in a blender, then stir in the thandai mix. Because mangoes have a tangy taste, you can add sugar or natural sweeteners to make them sweeter. To make it healthful and healthy, add a sufficient amount of nuts and seeds. To make the dish more appealing, top it with mango jelly or tutti-frooti.
Guava thandai is different from regular ones; the pink colour and creamy texture will make you fall in love. To your conventional thandai jar, add fresh pink guava pulp. For that, blend some guavas and sieve the mixture to get rid of the seeds. Add a handful of chopped nuts, chia seeds and scented spices to make the perfect thandai glass. Serve chilled to your guests.
Have you ever considered combining a drink with a dessert? If you haven't already, now is the time. With thandai phirni, we'll show you how to produce the best and out-of-the-box Holi cuisine. Phirni is popular milk and rice-based dessert. To create this, start by making thandai as you usually would. Bring this mixture to a boil, then add the broken or blended rice. Allow boiling, occasionally stirring, until you achieve the desired phirni texture. To make it more appealing, add dried fruits and saffron strands.
