For the chai lovers here comes a freshly brewed cuppa. Ginger and Cardamom or the intoxicating fragrance of the freshly ground spices added to the chai while it is boiling away merrily add a zing to the good old method of brewing a cup of plain Chai.
1 tbsp each of the following spices:
- Dry ginger
Heat all the above mentioned spices in the microwave for about a minute. Powder them fine and store the spice powder in an airtight container.
- 250 ml milk
- 100 ml water
- 1/2 tsp of spice powder
- 3 tsps sugar
- 2 tsps tea leaves
Pour the milk and water into a pan. Add the spice powder and sugar and bring to a boil. Simmer gently for a minute and then add the tea leaves. Simmer again for a minute. Switch off and shut the pan tightly with a lid. Allow the flavours to infuse for about two minutes. Strain the tea and serve hot.
