Indian Masala Chai Recipe | Healthy Masala Chai Recpe | Easy Chai

Tea or Chai, is one of the kick starter to every morning especially, in Indian Families. A day without a perfect cup of tea is equal to a nightmare. All the way from China during 2737 B.C, tea spread its wings of taste all over the world. In various countries, in different exotic flavours and names, it carved its presence. This one particular beverage creates the mood to think and write, stay calm, get rid of flu or fever, to attain bliss and whatnot. Tea is irreplaceable.

Tea, a king with many branches of flavours – has created an exciting flavoured tea named Masala Chai/Tea or Spicy Chai/Tea. The tangy, yet sweet is known for its mixture of spices crushed together as powder and mixed along with milk and sugar. Its aroma hits the nose and throat in seconds purifying the uneasy state of mind too. As it scores in taste, so does it have medicinal effects. This all in one good tea with spicy, tangy, “chatpatta” taste must be tried from local street chai stalls. Served as cuttings in a mud glass or normal glass, it must be drunk with Dosa, Idili, Vada etc..

A spice lover can easily gulp 2 cups of masala chai easily. What is with the wait. Let us try this one out.
