Indians love their tea, it is as if a part of them. Every tea lover has a specific way of making their classic cup of tea that will match their pallet. While many prefer a stronger flavour with less milk and sugar in their tea, others are happy with more carbs. Moreover many individuals also add spices to their tea in order to give it an extra zing. But have you ever heard of Dum Ki Chai? Cling on. Don’t shock yourself just yet. A video on how to make “dum ki chai” has surfaced on the internet, and it has left netizens exhausted.
The video opens with a person adding some water to a cup and covering it with a muslin cloth. He then put some sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, cardamom, and tea leaves on top of the cloth. The cup containing the muslin cloth was then placed inside a pressure cooker along with 3 cups of water and the cook let it boil for 5–6 minutes. After the muslin cloth was removed from the cup, the clip revealed black tea. The liquid was then poured into some hot milk and presto! and the dum chai was finally prepared.
