Masala Chai

Pin It Now!
Masla Chai is spiced version of milk tea made in Pakistan and India and there are different ways of making masala chai. There is no fixed recipe or method for masala chai and many families have their own versions of the tea, here's how i like my masala chai to be... 

Spiced tea

 For 2 cups of Masala Chai

Bring 1 ½ cups water to a boil, add 1 ½ teaspoons of loose tea or 2 teabags and sugar (as per your taste) add a Cinnamon bark stick, 1 Green Cardamom pod, 1 teaspoon Fennel Seeds.  Let the tea boil for 5 minutes, this allows the flavors to infuse. Add 1 cup of milk and allow the tea to come to a boil. Once the tea begins to rise, turn the heat down and allow it to simmer for another 5 minutes. 

Well actually I made dodh patti (only 2-1/2 cups milk, no water) so I added all ingredients plus milk in saucepan and let it come to boil then simmered for 5 minutes. You can add in a piece of ginger if you like, I don’t like it hence I omitted it.
