well most of us prefer the classic thandai recipe, but having multiple flavours and variations is better. from variations and adding flavours perspective, the possibilities are endless and can add almost everything. yet i have only chosen 3 flavours in this post including the classic thandai flavour. the other 2 options i have chosen are mango and paan flavour. the reason i chose mango is that it is the season and paan adds the additional mouth refreshing flavour. you can explore other options like coffee, tea, rose, vanilla, chocolate or any tropical fruits. but i would still emphasise the fact that these added flavours should not overpower the authentic taste and flavour of the actual drink.

furthermore, i would like to add some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to the 3 ways thandai mix recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have shown a wet or thick paste based masala which you need to mix with cold and chilled milk to make the drink. you may also dry roast the same ingredients and make a powder to make thandai powder and use it whenever you need. secondly, you may also use the mixture and mix it with basundhi or thick milk to make the more sweetened version. as matter of fact, you can deep freeze them in a popsicle to make kulfi out of it. lastly, the same masala mixture can also be used to make bhaang drink which is very famous during holi season. i would not recommend it but the same drink is mixed with cannabis or marijuana.
