Kaju aur Pista Ki Thandai - काजू और पिस्ता की ठंडाई (Cashew and Pistachio Milk Shake)

ello friends,


So, something good came out of something that didn't exist. OK, sorry that is not very helpful. Here it is, I wanted to make this chilling Badam (Almonds) milkshake this afternoon for evening time, but just happened to notice that I ran out of badam, doesn't happen very often, but today was one of theose days. Anyways, so, I am like ok, so what else do I churn into my milkshake, so I came up with this idea of mixing kaju and pista, so here you go with the milkshake.


Kaju aur Pista Ki Thandai - काजू और पिस्ता की ठंडाई (Cashew and Pistachio Milk Shake)


Ingredients
Milk - 1 cup
Kaju (Cashew) - 1/4 cup (Soak in warm water for 1 hour)
Pista (Pistachio) - 1/4 cup (Soak in warm water for 1 hour)
Saunf (Fennel Seeds) - 1 tbsp
Condensed Milk - 3/4 cup
Kesar (Saffron) - few strands soaked in little bit of warm milk
Ilaichi (Cardamom Powder)
Ice Cubes - 1 cup
Preparation

  • First grind kaju, pista and saunf in a blender
  • Then mix the rest fo the ingredients and blend them till a nice froth forms on the top.

Serving
Serve it chilled either at breakfast or snack time or any other time you feel like having a milkshake. If you use low-fat or skim milk instead of milk and instead of using condensed milk, simply use regular sugar, you can drink it anytime guilt free :) But, the real taste is in drinking the way it is here... lol


I am sending this for Thanda Mela event of Srivalli, Show me Your Smoothies event of Divya.





That's all for now, rest later.
