  4. I use Water and Milk in a ratio of 2 Cups. 3 Cups.
  5. You can use an equal quantity of water and milk as well.
  6. Add two cups of water to the saucepan or bowl you are using for making Ginger Tea.
  7. Bring the water to a boil.
  8. Now add crushed Ginger and add crushed Green Cardamom as well.
  9. Do not discard the skin of cardamom; it gives added aroma to the Cardamom Chai.
  10. Mix using a spoon.
  11. Let it boil for a minute on high flame.
  12. Now add 2 Tbsp. Sugar.
  13. Let it boil for a minute.

  22. If you prefer your tea on the lighter side. you can switch the flame off at this point.
  23. We prefer Kadak Chai aka Kora Cha (strong flavors).
  24. To make the tea strong, you have to boil it for 3 more minutes.
  25. Before straining the Chai, mix with a spoon.
