Masala Chai

I couldn’t be more happier when my dearest friend [from childhood]called me few months back to tell me that she and her family is moving to Singapore!
And what is even better ..she managed to find a place very close to mine!!
Of course the rest is obvious…! Whenever we catch up its always good food+great conversation. Its like we can carry on our babble forever!

The other day when I went to her place , she said she is going to make me her special Masala Chai..
And she started to make the Chai, we were soo busy talking talking [little gossiping as well] that she made her special tea, poured to cups, served to her /mine parents and the respective husbands..
And guess what!! She totally forgot to give one cup to her dearest friend :-)And whatz even worse… I didn’t even realize that until my mom said that the tea is awesome!!
I didn’t want the poor thing to make another cup just for me..So I got the recipe from her instead

So here is the Masala Chai recipe from my dearest ,bestest friend!

Masala Chai
For the Masala Chai Powder
3-4 Sticks Cinnamon
1 tspn Cloves
1 tspn Cardamom
Powder all the above ingredients well in a mixer until it is coarsely ground.

For the Chai
2 Cups Milk.
Sugar to Taste
1 inch Fresh Ginger
2 tspn Black Tea leaves/2 Black tea bags
Bring the milk to boil. [I prefer to have 1 cup Milk+1 Cup water ratio ,but for a richer taste you can use 2 cups milk]
Grate the Ginger finely.
When the milk is about to boil add the ginger+ Sugar+ Tea leaves
Lower the flame and Add about ½ tspn of the Masala Chai powder and stir for few seconds.
Switch off the flame, cover the pot with a lid to let the flavors infuse well for about a minute.
Now it’s time to enjoy the hot, refreshing Masala Chai
