About Turri Drink

Turri is a healthy and nutritious drink from the Indian subcontinent. It is made using dried nuts, coconut, dates, and milk and is popularly served during Ramazan (A Muslim fasting festival).

Turri is mostly served for sehri, which means before the onset of the fast. This drink keeps you full for a long time and gives your body enough energy to sail through the entire day without food or water.

It is also a great drink for pregnant and lactating mothers.

Turri can be served hot or chilled.

Ingredients

Dried Nuts – This drink is made using almonds (badam), cashew nuts (kaju), pistachios (pista), dry coconut, and foxnuts (makhana).

Dried Fruits – Dried fruits like seedless dates and dried figs are used to make turri.

Seeds – You will need melon seeds (magaj) and white poppy seeds (khus khus). If poppy seeds are not available, skip adding them.

Others – You will also need ghee, whole milk (full-fat milk), cardamom powder, clove powder (laung powder), and sugar.

To make a vegan turri drink, use vegan milk, such as oat, coconut, soy, or almond milk, instead of dairy milk.

You can skip any dried nuts, fruits, or seeds if they are unavailable.
