SAFFRON INFUSED CHAI
A comforting Indian Tea which has subtle flavours from the saffron strands I find it perfect for chilling with in the afternoon on my balcony. Just love the saffron & cardamom aroma!
After the chai I indulged into Rose Mint by Banarasi Mint, delicious sweet rose petal balls with mint and coconut.
1 tsp Cardamom powder
2 tbsp Loose tea leaves
1/2 cup Water
1 cup Milk (full fat)
1-2 tbsp Sugar (as per your taste)
Take 8-10 strands of saffron and put place it in a cup with 2 tbs of the milk (preferably warm) leave aside.
Boil the water in a heavy saucepan add the sugar, tea leaves and cardamom let it boil for about minutes.
Add the saffron immersed in milk and add rest of the milk simmer for 2 minutes, allow flavours to blend and enjoy the aroma. Strain the tea before serving
Serve hot and enjoy your chai!
