Chai with Prerna

Today's recipe
For 1 cup:
1/3 cup water and 2/3 cup 1% milk (If using skim milk, just use 1 cup skim milk)
boil on stove in pot with
1 tsp Taj Mahal Tea Powder per cup (or 2 tea bags per cup. they are weaker)
Add the following spices while boiling
1 clove (crushed up) per cup
2 pinches cardamom powder
1 small slice of fresh ginger (2 slices if you LOVE ginger)
OR... instead of all the spices, use 2 pinches of tea masala
Boil that til you get the right color. (whick is kind of a nice tan. Think Carribbean for about 3 days with proper sunscreen.)
Strain into your cup using a nifty tea strainer.
Add sugar to taste.
Watch for the book "Chai with Prerna"... coming soon.
