Indian Ginger Tea | Adrak Chai | Inji Tea | Shunti Tea

Packed with invigorating blend of spicy ginger, black tea, milk and sweetened with granulated sugar. 

A cup of chai is a must in my household. I serve chai with biscuits or usli in evenings. On a raining day, I serve it with piping hot bhaji or pakodas and trust me this is the best combination. 

Ginger tea has many medicinal properties like- it helps in digestion and relieves stress. Also, it helps to ward off cold and cough.

I use skimmed milk to make tea. And I like tea to be little watery.  

Servings : 2
Cook Time : 10 minutes


1 cup Regular milk | Skimmed milk 
1 cup Water
1 tsp Black tea powder
1 small piece of Ginger, crushed
1 1/2 tsp sugar

  • When it starts to boil, turn heat to low heat setting. Add sugar
  • Again turn to medium - high heat setting and stir continuously until tea changes to deep hue red

  • Strain tea using strainer
