A lot can be said about the Indian Masala Chai – this one of a kind, spiced, rejuvenating hot drink can jump-start your day!
You don’t NEED a recipe to make Masala Chai. What you need is a quick walk-though of the method adopted by Indians to make their daily cuppa tea.
I’m not much of a tea or coffee drinker. But I know people who cannot live without 1-2 cups of tea everyday. This Indian Tea has a larger milk content, thus making it milder than its western counterpart. What I’ve shown here is only a sample of how we make tea. You could easily add or leave out as many spices as you like… as long as the flavors blend well together! 🙂
Use your common sense while choosing what spices to use for your tea. Pre-made spice mixes are a no-no, since they come with salt content and other preservatives! Use whole spices like Cloves, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamom, Nutemeg etc… spices that you wouldn’t mind using in a dessert! (more…)
