Thandai: Instant Masala Milk [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup pistachio
  • 1/4 cup cashew nuts
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoons melon seeds
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds
  • 10 pods green cardamom, seeds only
  • 2 tablespoons dried rose petals
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon saffron


  1. Place all the ingredients in a clean, dry coffee/ masala grinder.
  2. Grind to a fine powder. At this stage, you can sieve the powder and grind the residue again. I skipped this step and left my mix a little chunky.
  3. Store in air tight jar and refrigerate.
  4. Blend a glass of milk, some sugar or any sweetener of your choice, according to your taste and 2 teaspoons of this mix in your blender. Taste and adjust for sweetness. Chill and enjoy!
