Masala Chai
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
8 ingredients
2 servings
If you like a creamy chai, try this one. Using whole spices instead of spice powders produces a clean taste, prevents a murky suspension, and no dregs in the bottom of the cup. Star anis and/or a vanilla bean can be added for variation. From Fresh Indian cook book, by Sunil Vijayakar. NOTE: Though this is a strongly brewed tea, some posters thought it was too strong for their taste. So I've added options to Steps 2 and 3 for those that prefer a less strong tea.
