Kawa kashmiri chai December 08 2013

I had quite a few cups of this delicious chai tea in Kashmir last month. It is made with many spices to keep you warm, especially in the bitter cold.


2 cups water
6-7 strands saffron
2-3 cloves
1/4 cinnamon stick
2 cardamom pods, crushed
1/4 teaspoon black loose tea leaves
2 teaspoons sugar

1 almond, finely chopped for garnish


Boil water over medium heat, when the water comes to boil, add all ingredients except almonds and cook for 5 minutes.
Strain into chai cups/ glasses and garnish with almonds, serve hot.
