Chai, anyone!
Do you have more than one tea in a day?
Which tea do you prefer? Lemon tea, Black tea, Masala tea...

If you are looking for some spicy tea, then here's the recipe for Masala chai. This recipe uses a blend of ginger and cardamom.

Ingredients to make Masala Tea:

  • Water -1/2 cup
  • Tea –    1 tsp heaped ( I use red label tea leafs)
  • Sugar -  2 tsp
  • Cardamom - 2
  • Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
  1. Crush ginger and cardamom together and keep aside. Boil milk and water till it froths.
  2. Now add sugar and stir well till it dissolves. Add crushed ginger cardamom and tea powder and simmer for 3-5 mins.
  3. When the tea starts to boil and turns strong, switch it off.
  4. Now filter the tea and serve hot.
Chai, ready!
