Thandai is a cooling drink , prepared with milk, lot of dry fruits, sugar and saffron. In my view it’s a power punch smoothie, cause its very nutritive. It provides instant cooling effect on body and also carries many health benefits.

Some people add dry ginger powder, pepper, dried rose petals and the very intoxicating Bhang.
