Masala Chai


Masala Chai

This warming beverage is easy to prepare by steeping spices in hot water and milk before adding black tea. To make it richer, add more milk and sugar to taste.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

4 whole cloves
2 cardamom pods
1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
3 cups water
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Black tea

Method:

In a mortar, crush the cloves, cardamom pods and cinnamon. Transfer the crushed spices to a small saucepan, add the water, ginger and pepper and bring to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat, cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add the milk and sugar to the pan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the tea. Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Stir the chai, strain it into a warmed teapot or directly into teacups.

Aha...... a simple tea made so appealing.

This tastes all the more better when you have it from a amrutulya.
