Don't Miss: Mahashivratri Special: Easy Vrat Recipes You Must Try



  • 1 litre whole milk
  • 1 cup soaked and skinned almonds  
  • 10 black peppercorns 
  • 8 cardamoms
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds  
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • Pinch of salt 


  • Grind the almonds with a few tablespoons of milk in it. Grind it so fine that so grains of the almonds are not visible anymore.
  • The spices too need to be ground in a separate dry blender. You can roast them on a pan before grinding to enrich the flavours.
  • Boil the milk and let it bubble over a little.
  • Now mix the almonds and the spices in the boiled warm milk and whip it for at least 5 minutes to get a creamy frothing texture.
  • Now strain the milk combination from a sieve to separate the solid particles from the cool beverage. You can either grind it again in the blender and reintroduce into the drink or just throw it away.
  • Mix sugar in 2 to 3 cups of water (depending on how dense you want your drink) until the sugar dissolves totally.
  • Dilute the drink with this sugar solution, pour into large glasses and add a pinch of salt to each glass for seasoning.
  • You must serve thandai cooled in the fridge because the name itself means 'cool'.

Enjoy these yummy sweets and wish you a very Happy Mahashivratri from HerZindagi!
