Thats how spicy it is :)Bee n Jai came up with this ingenious way of incorporating our dear little fiery chilli in the one place it would have never thought of ending up in,a cup of Chai. Garam Chai or Hot Chai now has a different meaning, thanks to them :P I could not wait until tomorrow to try it. It is 2:00am here and I am sipping this wonderful cup of tea. God knows when I am going to sleep now !
I used a green chilli equal in size to the one shown, and used the same method mentioned in their recipe here but skipped the ginger as my tea masala has enough of it. The method is just the way I usually make my tea and the green chilli was a surprise guest. It did not add direct heat but you will surely feel it in your throat as you enjoy your tea. The heat is not the kind which makes you gulp water by the bottle-fulls, but that which makes you look forward to the next sip. I guess I was also lucky in the size of chilli I used, I had absolutely no clue how it would turn out when I dropped it in the water :))
Here is my previous post on tea, its a masala tea made from fresh ingredients instead of tea masala.
