Too much of fennel...will not make it again

Tarla Dalal    Hi Megha, Thandai has a very dominant taste of fennel seeds, hence it is used in a little higher quantity. If you don''t like much dominant flavour of fennel seeds, you can reduce it in your paste. Do try this recipe once again and share your review with us.
