I traveled to India in the winter of 2011 with a deep appreciation of the culture and traditions of this spiritual land. What I didn’t know is how completely I would fall in love with the flavors of India. If you haven’t been, you’ve probably heard that India is an assault on the senses. Colors, sounds, and smells penetrate you in every moment; some pleasing, some not so pleasing. Amidst the onslaught, you can find a chai wala on almost every street corner, masterfully brewing sweet cups of chai all day long. This, along with many other things, is how I fell in love with India. And it’s one of the things I made sure to bring back with me upon return. Here’s a recipe using our traditional and spicy chai blend, to bring the flavors of India intimately into your home. Enjoy. And make often.
