  1. I love Cookies. Loved your idea of baking cookies using thandai powder. Amazing clicks and recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thandai cookies do taste really good. As I mentioned I’ve made them for another Holi event. Is it possible to buy dried fragrant roses for cooking in the shops in India? Love your photos Alka.

  3. Hi Alka, Its been a long time since I blog hopped, I started today and saw this recipe on G+. What a brill idea!I was actually thinking about making something sweet for Holi this year which I can carry with me for my colleagues at work. This sounds a perfect fit! I hope I dont forget to make it at all 🙂 See you around

  4. Yes Bhawana you can use the Sherbat , but then donot use the rose water as it will make it runny and since its liquid use lesser quantities to see first how much syrup you need to have the flavour of the thandai spice.
