Adrak Sauf Chai (Ginger Fennel Tea) – My Favorite Beverage

Chai or Tea is a very common Indian beverage made from tea leaves or powder, freshly grated ginger, milk, sugar, and water.

There are a few variations of tea made in India like Masala chai and Gur or jaggery wali chai. Masala chai made with spices known as Tea masala. Tea masala is made with different spices and herbs.  Gur Or jaggery wali chai is very tasty and healthy. It is made with milk, water, tea leaves. In jaggery tea, jaggery is added in the prepared tea.

Monsoon is the most beautiful season. Snacks you can enjoy in the monsoon –

  2. Bread kebabs,
  3. Oats Moong daal Tikki,
  4. Paneer Tikki,  with a hot cup of chai or tea.
