Written by Mili SemlaniNov 11, 2016
The festival of colours is one day away, and like any other Indian festival, food and drink form a big part of all the excitement. You don’t have to paint your hands and faces red to enjoy the lip-smacking delicacies specially made at the time of Holi. The traditional favourite, Thandai, is a creamy, milky drink with almonds, saffron and spices best served chilled. So whether you’re playing with colour or not, chugging on glasses of Thandai is a must. Of course, if you aren’t a milk and almond person, these modern twists will appease your palette.
