Masala Chai

MASALA CHAI

Masala chai! A hot beverage most popular in India where hot milk is made to boil with spices and black tea, then filtered and served with rusks or biscuits which are usually dunk into the chai and eaten!! Nothing like having a glass of chai in the evening with rusks ! They are soo warm and comforting especially during cold weather!

I’m basically a coffee person and so is my husband. I rarely make chai at home. I do love green tea and the masala one. So I decided to make one for myself . But when I made this chai, very lately I discovered that my husband too loves tea especially the masala one as much as he loves coffee! He very well enjoyed his steamy masala chai with rusks! I was very glad that he liked it!
