Masala Tea (Chai)

Some people use a spice mix to make chai, but it’s really not hard to make your own, and it’s more authentic with fresh ingredients.

Ingredients

1 Mug Water

1 Mug Milk

3-4 Green Cardamom pods

1 inch Fresh Ginger, crushed or roughly chopped

2-3 Tbsp Loose Black Tea Leaves

2 Tbsp Palm Sugar

To Prepare

Put the Water, Milk, Cardamom pods, Ginger, and Sugar into a small pot. Heat on the stove until it simmers, not quite to boiling. Remove from heat, and stir in the Tea Leaves. Cover, and let the tea steep in the pot for about 5 minutes. Strain into mugs and serve hot, preferably with tea biscuits or Indian sweets.

Serves an intimate gathering of 2 or 3 dear friends.
