Post 5, in which I share my recipe for chai tea that I learned to make in India
When I was staying in the beautiful city of Udaipur, I took the opportunity to learn 6 Indian dishes from a local women teaching from her home.
Here is the recipe I learned for delicious Indian chai tea.
Small piece of ginger
5 or6 Cloves
3 Black peppercorns
3 Green Cardamon pods
Small stick of cinnamon
Teaspoon sugar per person
Put 1/2 milk, 1/2 water on the stove with 3 teaspoons of tealeaves and cinnamon stick and start boiling
While waiting for it to boil crush up ginger, cloves, cardamon, pepper (I use a mortar and pestle) and add it to the pot with the sugar.
If the colour is too light, add more tea.
Once boils, turn it off, strain and serve!
Tada!! it's lovely masala tea
