Soak almonds in water for at least 6 hours. Peel off the almond’s skin.

Using a blender, blend the almonds into a paste. Add just enough water to let the almond blend into a paste.
In the same blender add the grinded spices and about ½ cup of water with almond paste. Blend until creamy.
Add 1 cup of water and sugar blend until sugar dissolve.
Strain the mix through the fine strainer or cheesecloth.
Return the left over ground paste to the blender with rest of the water.
Blend again and extract the liquid once more.
Discard remaining ground mash.
Mix the almond liquid, milk, and rose water.
Thandai is ready serve over the crush ice.
