Doing some serious spring cleaning, and the good people at freecycle will be benefiting :) Yummy masala helps me part with my things, the spices fill my heart so there’s no need to hoard useless stuff.
Today I tried a different steeping method. 5 grams in 12oz boiling water, still in a pan on the stove. Boiled for 6 minutes and then added 8oz milk, some honey and simmered some more. Didn’t keep track of how long, but it was kind of long, since I poured the chai into a 16oz problem and it all fit.
This is quicker and less troublesome than my previous small-batches brews and still very tasty. A good option to try when I want a treat in a huge mug.
Oh, and I doctored up the tin of Masala Chai. Took some cardamom pods and a quarter of cinnamon stick, mashed it in the mortar and mixed it really good. That was what my packaged mix was missing! The original version was charged with cloves and pepper, this upgrade rounds up the flavor.
