Piyush tastes like nectar, and nothing short of it, especially on a hot summer’s day when you are on a fast. This faraal recipe keeps you full for quite some time, as it is made with sumptuous ingredients like shrikhand and fresh buttermilk.

The assortment of spices used, especially kesar, give the drink a very rich hue and flavour. We have garnished with pistachios, as they contrast in colour and show up well against the Piyush, but you can use other nuts as well.

Some more cooling drinks to enjoy on days you are fasting - Thandai , Coconut Kewra Drink and Minty Mango Delight .

I had some shrikhand leftover and so tried this simple recipe.. It was simply delicious! The flavours of cardamom and nutmeg give it a rich taste. It was enjoyed by my family and the shrikhand too was over in a jiffy. This one is absolutely recommended summer cooler for all.
