Party Menu recipe posted by Lakshmi

Bhangra Pepsi is nothing but jal jeera added to pepsi…its named as bhangra pepsi by Punjabi Dhaba on Cenotaph Road…the recipe is, take one tsp of jal jeera in a tall glass and pour pepsi over it slowly to avoid the froth flowing out…oh I can swear its just too yum a drink…jal jeera being an appetizer acts as a superb welcome drink along with apple-cinnamon juice and pinapple pinacolada which are famous mocktail drinks

Sugar - 100 gms


Dry roast all the nuts and powder them. Grind the kesar strands separately. Grind the sugar separately. Mix all the three ingredients together and store it in a cool dry container.

Thandai - cooling appetizer recipe

Inspired by the drink that we had in Olives, I got this recipe from one of my friends. This is a very popular Rajasthani drink and is prepared whenever there is a festival or Puja in the house.

Though this is a Rajasthani dish, this is famous all over North India it seems.

Milk - 1 litre
Sugar - 1/2 cup (powder it well)
Pepper corns - 10 to 12
Saffron Strands - A few
Almonds - 1/4 cup or 12 to 15 nos.
Poppy Seeds (Khus Khus) - 2 tbsp
Cardomom Powder - 1/4 tspn
White pepper corns - 20 (optional)

Boil the milk and make it to 3/4th. Grind Almonds, Poppy Seeds, Cardomom Powder and White Pepper Corn and add it to the boiled milk and refrigerate it for 3 to 4 hours. Then drain it through a seive and add sugar, pepper corns and saffron stands. Chill again. Just before serving add a few pieces of soaked and peeled almonds and cashewnuts.
