Mango thandai with simple ingredients and procedure. A yummy twist to the regular thandai, with the tropical fruit added for flavour in this thandai inspired drink.

I got to know this simple thandai recipe from my friend and love it a lot. I saw this idea of mango thandai in a restaurant menu in Insta feed and wanted to try this mango season. This year, I haven’t purchased much mangoes as I did not frequent Indian groceries like I used to. Only a couple of dozens may be. Banganapalli and Alphonso, one dozen in each.

So tried mango thandai when I had stock of mangoes. For such drinks and dishes with mango, I prefer Alphonso as it gives colour, flavour and for it’s sweetness as well.

I have cashew in this recipe instead of 1 tsp khus khus (poppy seeds). You can also use magz in place of it.
