Masala Chai

It’s starting to get a little cold in Saudi and I’m always relying on cups of tea and coffee to keep warm. I used to be this hardcore coffee lover who hated tea, but I had never tried Masala Chai back then. Recently, I happened to try it a few times and fell in love with it.

Here’s presenting my version of it. 🙂

Serves: 2

Water – 1 cup
Milk – 1cup
Black Tea-bags – 3
Sugar – 2.5 tbsp
Cardamom – 4 pods (crushed)
Ginger – 2 inch piece (crushed)

Pepper corns – 6-8
Cloves -5
Cumin – 1 tsp
Cinnamon – 1 small stick

Step 1: Boil 1 cup water along with the tea-bags, sugar, crushed cardamom and ginger.

(Adding the optional spices takes the masala chai to a whole new level. You could choose to skip it.)

Step 2: Add 1 cup milk and bring to a boil.

Step 3: Strain and serve hot.
