Chai tea in the indian way

I have been to india three times, and chai tea the way the indians make it is …yummy! I have not come across any place here in europe where they make chai the indian way (except indian restaurants). So, therefore I found the recipe on how to make real chai tea on klikk.no, but unfortunately it’s in norwegian so I will translate the important parts to english.

Chai is simply black tea with spices like cinnamon, ginger, fennel and some other spicy spices (you can fill in the blanks). Make sure that it’s not aromatic tea, but pure black tea. I usually buy Chai tea from a shop and add some extra cinnamon simply because I love cinnamon.

Boil/steam the water on medium heat with the spices in for about 10 minutes.

Add milk and sugar (sweeteners) and boil it up again, then add the tea and let it draft(?) for a couple of minutes.

Enjoy!

    Interessant:)
    Tusen takk. Vi kjenner en iransk dame i naboblokka som også koker chai hver morgen. Men så er hun også oppvokst i Mumbay… Vi har meldt vår interesse for å lære.

    Det er nok best å få tipsene fra de innfødte ja. Jeg fikk til å lage ordentlig chai første gangen jeg fulgte oppskriften, men ikke den andre gangen (hvor jeg ikke fulgte oppskriften slavisk). Men – jeg gir meg ikke før jeg har fått det til og skjønt det.

    Så lenge jeg slipper å lage den så søt som de gjør på den indiske restauranten vi bruker å frekventere så. Det blir bare alt for mye.
