MASALA JAGGERY TEA
You may laugh at me if I say I was poor in preparing tea till 3 years back since we all love filter coffee in our family and not a single day of our life has passed (till today) without hot filter coffee. After we started living with many North Indian friends of our flat, I have become a lover of tea too! They make excellent tea. So, I have taken the recipe from them for masala tea and I have been preparing my tea really well for the past one year. I am very fond of jaggery. Recent times, people are very much diet conscious and started avoiding white sugar wherever possible. Hence, I ended up with masala iaggery tea which is extremely tasty and I request my viewers to try this out and post feedback. I have made a blend of 2 types of tea leaves. You can similarly arrive at your own brand. Many masala tea includes cinnamon for health reasons, but personally I don’t like that taste, you can decide according to your wish.

Tea leaves 1 tbsp
Low fat milk(without adding water) 1 ¼ cups

Clove 1 to 2(according to size)
Fresh Ginger small piece(1/2 inch)

Wash, peel off skin of ginger and crush it. You can very well add ginger powder(liberal pinch) instead of fresh ginger. I have used ginger powder.

Sim the gas and allow to boil for 2 more minutes.
Filter and enjoy with hot spicy snack item or fried nuts.
