3 Mocktails and Thandai Recipes To Make Your Holi More Colourful
Holi is the most colourful festival in India. With so many colours and happy people, it's a perfect time to celebrate with your friends and family. But we all know how hard it can be to get everyone together for a party! So, we've put together some fun fuss-free recipes that will help you make your Holi more colourful than ever before!
- Mango Lassi
This is a very popular drink in India. Mango lassi has the perfect blend of sweet and tangy and it’s a good source of protein, calcium and vitamin A. Ripe mangoes, yoghurt, and your choice of flavourings, such as cardamom, saffron, or rose water, are all you need to make this fruity, rich, creamy, and refreshing Mango Lassi recipe in less than 15 minutes.
You can start making the mango lassis by peeling and chopping 3 to 4 ripped mangoes which will give you ~2 cups of chopped mangoes. In a blender, add the chopped mangoes, a sweetener of your choice – honey or sugar, and your choice of flavourings. Blend the mixture until the consistency is smooth and pulpy. Ensure there are no chunks of mangoes left. Now add 2 cups of yoghurt or curd. Blend again. You can add water to make the lassi thinner. Pour in a glass and serve.
If you like, you can either sprinkle some grated chocolate or whipped cream. To add some crunchiness, you can sprinkle some chopped almonds or cashews.
- Chocolate Thandai
The chocolate thandai is a simple recipe that can be made in no time at all. The ingredients required are 2 tablespoons thandai masala, 2 cups of chilled milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 2 tablespoons of drinking chocolate, and some chopped nuts to garnish.
Add 2 tablespoons thandai masala in a glass. Pour 2 cups of chilled milk. Now add the drinking chocolate and mix well. Ensure there are no lumps of drinking chocolate or thandai masala. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar if you like your lassi to be sweeter. It is best to blend the mixture with a hand blender until smooth. While serving in a glass, you can add a few ice cubes. Garnish with nuts or rose petals.
