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.

  1. If you live in India, Lasa Lamsa Mix
  2. 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)

Step 1: 

  • 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. 

Step 2:

  • 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!
