What is Indian chai?

Chai is a hot beverage made using tea leaves, milk, water, sugar. In this particular recipe, I have used condensed milk which makes it very silky, creamy and smooth. It is ready in no time but it has such flavour as if it has been simmered for long. One secret ingredient i.e. condensed milk does everything in Indian chai recipe.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Indian Chai

Any chai calls for tea leaves, some milk and some sugar. But not this one!! Yes, you heard it right… as in you read it right. This chai does not use regular milk and sugar. It asks for condensed milk. And I have to mention that I make condensed milk at home. Addition of spoonful of condensed milk will take your cuppa to another level. I have kept is very basic… because I wanted to relish the flavour of chai… simple chai. It can be flavoured with ginger, cardamom and other spices, as you like your tea.

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!.
