Add a fun twist to your usual Thandai and make a full-fledged dessert with the Thandai Mousse Cake! Mix together baking powder, baking soda, and cardamom powder with all-purpose flour. Then make a batter of yoghurt, castor sugar, vegetable oil and vanilla essence. Then mix the two batters together and blend thoroughly. Bake the sponge cake batter in a preheated oven at 180-degree celsius for 25 minutes.
Mix together heated fresh cream with chopped up white chocolate, Thandai syrup and whipped cream. Add a layer of this mixture onto the sponge cake and sprinkle ground almonds and pistachios over it. Cool the cake for an hour and then your Thandai Mousse Cake will be ready for you to dive into it.
3. Instant Thandai Mix
Add blanched almonds, pistachios, fennel seeds, melon seeds, black peppercorns, poppy seeds, dry rose petals, and sugar to a container. Pour into a mixer and blend the ingredients together. And there you have it, your own Instant Thandai Mix powder ready for you to use anytime you crave the yummy drink!
4. Thandai Cheesecake
Mix together crushed digestive biscuits with butter to prepare the base of your Thandai Cheesecake. Add it to your glass to set the bottom layer. In another bowl, first, blend some cream cheese really well. Then add your very own Instant Thandai Mix powder, soaked Kesar, and whipped cream to it and blend it together again. Pour this cheesecake mix into your piping bag and add it on top of the base layer inside the glasses. Garnish with pistachios and dried rose petal leaves and refrigerate to later enjoy your homemade Thandai Cheesecake!
