Indians like their tea with milk – and that does not mean just adding a spot of milk to the tea after infusion.

Indian Tea or chaai is made by cooking the tea leaves in a mixture of milk and water, till it acquires a rich hue, aroma and flavour.

These three – that is, colour, aroma and taste – set the benchmark for a cuppa. All three need to be perfect for the Indian Tea to be refreshing and enjoyable!

If you like sugar in your tea, it is best to add it while the tea boils because it enriches the colour and aroma too. This recipe tells you how to make Indian Tea, a perfect cup of homemade chaai.

You indicate this recipe for 2cups. However your liquid ingredients Milk 3/4 cup and Water 1/2 cup does not make it to 2cups. Both together is 1/14cup.

Tarla Dalal    Dear Hemant Thanks for bringing this to our notice. The water in this recipe is 1 1/2 cups, which has been updated. The serving size of 2 cups is thus perfect. To answer your other question, with change in serving size our system makes the changes in the quantity of ingredients only. Proportionate change in any quantity in ingredients, like water, mentioned in the procedure has to be done manually.
