India | Uttar Pradesh


Thandai is a popular milk-based drink in north India which is prepared during the festivals of Holi and Shivaratri. This drink, unique to Varanasi, is assumed to be the prasad of Lord Shiva. It is made by mixing together khus khus (poppy seeds), a few crushed almonds and rose petals, adding some water and sugar to them and blending them together. This cool and refreshing drink is a great thirst quencher on a hot summer day.
