My kadak ginger chai
CHAI is life! & a good cup of chai can fix your day! I know we all have our own way of making chai, but of all different kinda chai recipes, this recipe never disappoints.
I prefer using mixture tea! the one that I get from the local store is honestly the best, I don’t know where to find it online, but, you can use the below chai powders.
- If you live in India, Lasa Lamsa Mix
- If you reside outside India, you should try Wagh Bakri ( for some reason I liked the exported tea powder better when compared to what I found here locally)
- Take 1.5 cups of water
- add 1 tsp tea powder (I prefer mixture tea)
- grate 1 medium piece of ginger and add it here
- cook until you see 3/4th of water remains.
- Boil 1/2 cup milk with 1 inch cinnamon stick and sugar as per taste.
- when the milk boils, lower the flame & strain the 3/4th cup of black tea here
- let it cook on low flame for 2-3 minutes.
Your Ginger Chai is ready!!!! 🙂
P.S. Please use whole milk in your chai (in case you use skim milk or low fat milk, follow the below recipe!)
- in a pan, add 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup water
- add sugar, 3/4th tsp tea powder, 1 inch finely chopped ginger
- cook it on high flame till the milk boils & on medium flame till the quantity reduces to 3/4th cup.
- Strain & enjoy your garam chai
You can switch ginger with cardamom for cardamom chai, you can add no masala for regular tea. My personal fav is ginger , hence, sharing my fav here!

Chai is something I love brewing at home after a long day and reading through it is now making me get up, take a break and prepare that one cup which may keep me going for a few more hours…

Not really a fan of chai, but my husband is. Maybe I’ll make him a cup of ginger tea. That would be a great surprise for him.

Simple recipes are also important to follow to retain the eternal taste. I am big lover of adrak wali chai.

There is no comparison for Ginger Chai and if it has a glamour of cinnamon and cardamom.. Toh kiya kehna

My morning starts with ginger and black pepper milk tea made by my husband. I don’t even like the chai that I make. I have never tried mixture tea but would love to try it once.

We both love chai and it was pleasure reading the chai recipe. I will try ur suggestions.

Chai lovers are finicky about the right blend and taste. I for one don’t like cinnamon much. Ginger is a must though!

Chai or tea, whatever you call it is my all-time favourite hot drink. I can have it any time of the day. I love it when someone else makes it for me… 😛

You know I have a special formula for making my chai too and if anyone messes it up I get really upset 😂

A Good cup of tea is heaven!

Though I drink coffee, I had to master the art of preparing the right tea because all my family members except me at my home are chai lovers. I remember when I prepared tea for the first time after marriage and my grand dad- in law mentioned that I make the perfect blend even without being a chai drinker had made my day. So though I don’t drink tea, I have some beautiful memories associated with it.

And now that made me crave for a cup of chai
September 26, 2021 @ 7:12 am

I think every household have there trademark tea and little change in that will not be not acceptable. I make my own homemade chai masala which is a secret recipe of my mom.
September 28, 2021 @ 8:27 am
We all have different ways of making chai. Adrak wali is also my favourite. I have never tried Lamsa or Wagh Bakri Chai. Will surely try them out.

I love lemongrass and ginger tea. The combination tastes best especially in monsoons.
September 30, 2021 @ 9:50 pm
Calling all the chai lovers here including me. I love all kinds of chai and keep trying different flavors at home too. Lamsa is my fav too.
