Hello everyone! Greeting you’ll after long time as was on holidays but its looking like that I haven’t met the place since ages 🙂 ……. Hope you’ll doing good. Here starting my year with a very basic Post yet a rejuvenating start to the year. This one is also special cz it is my 201(200+1) post; the one auspicious post as the first post of the year. I am feeling also encouraged as this one is my post after two awards by my Blogger friends Namrata & Divya who nominated me for Liebster Awards which I have added into the Awards List.
Today I am presenting here the post of Cardamom Tea/Chai.Tea. Tea, without which everyone’s morning is incomplete therefore, it needs to be some extra special, aromatic, and with goodness. Here tea’s goodness is concealed in its aroma & features of cardamom and tea powder.
Everyone has different way of making and liking of tea. Some add more milk in tea; some want it stronger with more tea powder, some like it slight in sweetness and vice-versa etc. The way I am sharing is the method my lovely Bro, Akchay taught me like a professional chef live in his Kitchen :). Each step neatly and methodically performed. That made me feel to capture his method but it just couldn’t strike when he did and I missed :(. Well Done job Bro, the cup of tea was comforting and scrummy.
Otherwise this is replication of his way and method of making Cardamom Tea:
Time Taken-For Preparation- 1 min
For Cooking- 10-12 min
Ingredients (1cup=250ml) & (1tsp=5ml)
Tea Powder-2 tsp
Water- 1½ cups
Sugar- 6 tsp or to taste
Cardamom- 7 pods
Steps to follow
- Heat water in a saucepan; add in sugar, tea powder and let it boil.
- When boil comes, lower the flame to medium, and add ground cardamom powder (a fine as possible with mortar& pestle /grinder) and let it brew for 5 minutes more.
- Now add milk (hot or w arm, fine) and let it brew again for few minutes to gain perfect tea color.
- Strain into cups and serve hot. Enjoy its every sip.
- Larger time given for brewing, better the flavor of tea.
- Take ¼ to ½ cup extra of water to the required serving as some will evaporate on brewing.
would love to hear you:
