Masala Chai - Indian Spice Tea (authentic recipe from the Himalayas)
Loved the design, added an accessory.
i just printed out the build pictures and i am thinking of making a big version of it 2mtrs by 3 or more it looks great for something one can make itselves even with two left hands witch ive got.
Looks awesome. Thanks.
Thanks! I am really appreciate it!
There are so many "quick" chai recipes, I am happy to find an authentic recipe as I drink tea by the gallon and not from mixes. Turbinado sugar is a good raw sugar, as is coconut palm sugar, or demerara. I did find a source that said many in (rural)India use a kind of sugar usually in bricks, called jaggery(or gur, gud or panela), which is a raw brown sugar with a very rich molasses taste. The chai recipes can vary quite a bit from region to region it seems, so I don't think any spice you throw in is wrong as long as you enjoy the taste. I like to put in whatever I have around for complexity, and turmeric is good if you're fighting a cold.
hey bloom,did you use whole peppercorns?
I made it and turned out great! Like the other commentators below, I definitely recommend adding black peppercorns to the recipe if you are looking for a spicier chai.
