Amla, also known as Indian gooseberries, grows on a flowering tree of the same name. The small berries are round and bright or yellow-green. Though they are quite sour on their own, their flavor can enhance recipes they’re added to. A tangy fruit, Indian Gooseberry is mostly available during the winter months. This fruit is particularly famous for its unusual taste as it contains a mixture of different flavors ranging from bitter, pungent, sweet to astringent and sour.

Adrak Elaichi Chai | Ginger Cardamom Tea | My Favorite Beverage | To My All Chai Partners

My morning is incomplete without adrak elaichi wali chai and the aroma of elaichi (green cardamom) and flavor of ginger. The aroma, flavor and taste of ginger is something I extremely fond of in my tea. Ginger also has a lot of health benefits.

Indian Chai

In India, the term “Chai” means tea. Since most Indians drink tea boiled with milk and sugar the word has become synonymous with milk tea. There are several variations and the names usually indicate the condiment used with the tea. But two important ingredients are – ginger (adrak) and green cardamom (elaichi).

Main Ingredients

A “Masala Chai” is a chai tea with milk and a hint of spices – cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon mostly. Saunf wali chai is the same milk tea flavored with fennel seeds. The main difference between chai and masala tea is the addition of spices. Chai is black tea and hot milk, while Masala tea will combine black tea, milk and a few spices. Everyone has a preference when it comes to chai. Some prefer more milk or no milk, some prefer a strong, some prefer with sugar or without sugar or with gur (jaggery ). Being a Pahadi, Chai is like a drug to us – whatever the time maybe we are always ready for having a good cup of tea because “One cuppa chai is all we need”. 

Proud Pahadi

But one nice thing about making chai is, that while brewing it in a pot, the aroma of spices will fill the air and make you anticipate the delicious drink soon to be enjoyed. I can sip chai throughout the day. I prefer chai with food, or as a dessert with tea time cake or dried fruits in short with anything :). 

Adrak Elaichi Chai

It is really a tasty and fulfilling drink when you enjoy with your family and friends. “Friendship and tea… Millions of bits & a lot of hot water make a good, strong brew.

I have amazing my Chai partners and strangely I find myself sharing my innermost secrets with them over a cup of chai. Sometimes, I feel there is some sort of mental connection that chai lovers share between them.
