There is nothing in winters than a big pot full of bubbly creamy sweet chai latte simmering with cardamoms and smelling diviiiiiine!!!!!
I have many a fond memories associated with the sweet milk teas on cold winter nights with cracking peanuts!!!!
There is just sometihing sooooo waaarrrm and cooozy about it
The whole idea just fills you up with warmth!!!
There are homes which are constatnly simmering these concoctions by the minute!!
After a long day nothing beats wrapping your fingers around the hot mug of steamy chai latte and chattering with your loved ones while cuddling in blankets…
Can I say it brings people together 😀 😀
And makes the world a better place?!?!?!?!? 😀
I don’t know about the rest of you but it makes MYYY world a better place!!!
There are several ways of doing it. There is no particular right or wrong it’s all about preference. As far as I know evvvvveryone has their own version of it. Their own pressure point which they want to meet in each and every cup! And once they create the perfect cup! It makes their day bright and everything easy-ier!!!
Here is what you need to do to make a big pot! Yes I say pot!!Coz it should be something like bigger like not just for the individual but for the friend dropping by or your spouse coming home after a long day!! Or maybe you need two instead of one!! Like all warmth inducing things we want them BIIIIG and plenty!!!! And to be able to share!!
You can certainly cut it down! With one tea bag one cup of water and milk about 1/2 cup!!
Okay back to the recipe
I use brown sugar for absolutely no particular reason. Plain white sugar would be just as fine! Milk should be full fat. There are skimmed milk version as well. But the traditional recipe calls for good quality full fat creamy milk, and I recommend not replacing it! My favourite ingredient has to be the cardamom pods!! The aroma is just overwhelming!! I love it!!! Some prefer to skip it! (I fail to see Y) and you most certainly can! But I would definintely recommend it always!!
3 cups milk
3 black tea bags of your choice
2 tbs brown sugar
2 cardamom pods
3 cups water
Step 1: Bring water to a boil.
Step 2: Add cardamom pods and tea bags adn let it simmer for a minute or two. You can add the sugar here as well. Or if not you can add it to your personal mug later.
Step 3: Pour milk. Bring the pot to a boil and than turn the heat down to a simmer.
Step 4: Pour it in mugs and serve with your favourite biscuits or cake!
I love mine with these date coconut oat bars!! Soon to be posted!!
Here is to a warm winter and a cozy coming december!!!!
