Kashmiri Chai (Tea) Recipe

Posted on: June 17, 2010

Ingredients


4 cups water
2 tsp. green tea
¼ tsp. soda bicarbonate
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup milk
2 tsp sugar
¼ tsp. green cardamom (Chhoti Ilaichi) powder
½ tsp chopped pistachio
Take almonds about 3-6 for each cup and shave/slice them w a non-serated knife into the cups.

* Add water to a pot. For four cups you may need 6 cups, as a lot of it will reduce.
* Add cardamum, sugar and cinamon sticks to the water. This tea is supposed to be extra sweet so add over a spoon of sugar for each cup, up to spoon and a half (crushed cardamum about 3-4 for each cup; break 1-2 sticks into the water for about four cups)
* Bring to a boil.
* Let simmer for ten minutes covered or uncovered. covered will help the water from reducing too much. water will turn pink after ten minutes.
* Add only a small amount of loose tea as you would for iced tea. So this might be just under 1/4 teaspoon for each cup. (the trick is not to use too much tea. It should be a lightly flavored tea.
