Rakhi is a festival of brother-sister love and nothing expresses it than making something special for your brother this rakhi! I have compiled some amazing appetiser, lemonade and dessert recipes which can be used to make this festival even more joyous 😀😀😀


It's easy to assemble and made with all store bought ingredients like vanilla cake, whipping cream, mukhwaas and flavorings! 



Mango and chocolate pudding trifle 

Luscious and creamy trifle made by layering crushed oreos, custard, mango puree and homemade chocolate sauce together. You can make this dessert 1 day in advance and it will make for an amazing dessert to make on the occassion of Rakhi.




If you haven't made Thandai at home before then you just try now! I guarantee that you will stop making with store bought thandai syrup. Homemade thandai tastes so much better and is extremely flavorful with the use of cooling ingrdients like soaked almonds, poppy seeds, watermelon seeds, black pepper and cardamom. Tastes best when chilled and is an amazing welcome drink to make for your brother!
