I have never made this thandai on my own, but happened to drink this few times in holi parties. Few of my friends insisted me to put this recipe of Thandai . I got this recipe from my friend who regularly makes thandai for our holi party.  It turned out very well and i never know it is very easy to make Thandai at home. Even my south Indian friends, if you are not celebrating holi also, just try out this drink and stay cool this summer. This thandai is made for Maha shivaratri too.

Hi jeyashri

I was looking for a thandai recipe n glanced upon this. I stay in the UAE n here poppy seeds are not allowed to be sold n brought from India. Any other substitute you would recommend?

Thanks
Pooja

Even we don't get this in Singapore. I got from my friend who bought from India. Just skip the poppy seeds and make the thandai
