Recipe for Indian chai with step by step pictures and a quick recipe video
What is Indian chai?
Well internet won’t tell you that. This is the name I have given to my chai. Makhmali chai is a very rich and creamy tea. Absolutely refreshing! It is ready in no time but it has such flavour as if it has been simmered for long. One secret ingredient 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. Makhmali 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 the way you like your tea.
Other chai recipe on the blog is masala chai.
