Thandai Cake in Tart

I have been introduced with Thandai a couple of years ago. As being a Bong of North East India, Thandai was not familiar to me earlier. Thandai is a North Indian drink, served mainly at the festival of Holi. It tastes really yummy. Thandai ingredients has a cooling effect in body so as it is called a Thandai. But I thought of doing something twist to it. A fusion with Thandai and our famous Rabri. It really came out very well and liked by all.

For the base, take Digestive Biscuits crushed 1 cup, melted butter 4 tablespoon and 1 tablespoon of sugar. In a mixing bowl, mix everything together. Place a tart pan with removable bottom and grease it with butter a little. Spread the mixture of biscuits crumbs over it and up sides and press with the fingers to set. Place it in the refrigerator for sometime.


Make a smooth paste of soaked almonds, a handful, cashews a handful, a tablespoon of melon seeds, a tablespoon of poppy seeds, 2-3 cardamoms, a tablespoon of fennel seeds, a tablespoon of pistachios, 1/2 tablespoon of black pepper. Grind everything together into a paste.


Now, in a mixing bowl blend, 1 cup of rabri (reduced 1 liter milk with 2 tablespoon of sugar), 1:2 cup of Thandai mixture, a pinch of saffron soaked in 2 tablespoon of milk, 1-3 cup of fresh cream, 1 teaspoon of rose water, a teaspoon of rose essence and 2-3 tablespoon of sugar. Mix everything well.


In a small bowl, take a tablespoon of gelatine and mix it with 2 tablespoon of hot water. Mix this bloomed gelatine in the rabri mixture.


Now pour this Thandai Rabri mixture in the set biscuit base and garnish with pistachios and saffron/kesar. Let it set covered in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.


Serve chilled garnishing with some rose petals over it.
