What is cutting chai?

Chai from the streets of Mumbai, with a difference! Yes, I have been making tea all my life but one morning I thought of making cutting chai for the blog and me (wink). And without expecting much I sipped it and was surprised to relish the difference between a cutting chai and a normal chai. Cutting chai has strong flavors of cardamom and ginger. It is creamier than the regular ones. It gives a better kick, you know what I mean if you are a chai lover.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Cutting Chai Recipe

It doesn’t call for any special ingredients. Like most of the chai, cutting chai too is a combination of milk, water, sugar, some cardamom, and little ginger. But what makes it different is the way it is prepared. Cutting chai is simmered and brewed at every stage. It calls for slightly more time than the regular chai. Sugar level can be adjusted as per taste.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
