Most of us start our day either with Tea or Coffee, right? Though it is an everyday drink, I felt I should record the masala chai we like it home. I am sure each family has a different way of making tea. 

But this Masala Chai is a perfect one to enjoy on a rainy evening, cuddled up on the sofa with a magazine or a book on hand!!

Sometimes I don't add water. I make tea with only milk for a richer taste. So here is the humble tea for day 4 week 3 of BM #27.

Masala Chai

Ingredients - 

Tea Powder 2 tsp (or a tea bag)
Milk 3/4 cup
Water 1/4 cup
Sugar as needed
Ginger 1/2 inch piece
Masala to Grind - 
Cloves 2
Cinnamon Powder 1/8 tsp
Cardamom Powder, 1/4 tsp
Pepper Corns 3-4

Method Of Preparation -

Grind the ingredients for the masala and set aside.

In a heated pan, add milk, water, tea masala and grated ginger and bring it to a boil. 

Let it boil for about 2-3 minutes so that the flavors are infused. 

Strain, add sugar or preferred sweetener and enjoy with accompaniment of your choice!
