Homemade Masala Chai Powder and Masala Chai

I always like to have my cup of Chai / Tea (a hot beverage) piping hot. I use to start my day daily with a cup of hot tea, which makes me brisk and bright. Masala Chai is a blend of aromatic spices with our normal tea. Masala Chai gives a warmth feeling, when we have it during rainy days or at winter time. Combination of spices and the amount of spices added in preparing masala chai powder depends upon individual taste. People who love the flavor of ginger in tea can add more ginger while preparing masala powder and who love cardamom flavor can add more number of cardamoms. So, everything is at their own discretion. When you have cold and congestion in nose, Masala Chai really gives a good relief and soothing feel.

Rava Kichadi

I can’t believe till now that I have tried Rava Kichadi in my kitchen. Because, when I hear, Rava Kichadi, I simply say “No” and I don’t like it most. But, it is my SH’s favorite dish. He use to ask me to prepare kichadi for him, most of the times. But, I haven’t tried for him. And he use to have it restaurants we go for. After and almost 8 years of my marriage life, I prepared Rava Kichadi for him and he was so amazed of it, not b’coz f my preparation but because of its taste. It came out too good and I too tried it and wondered why I have said NO to this recipe without even tasting once itself. I promise everyone will like this simple dish. It was really too good and so light. Hereafter, I will try it in my kitchen frequently. And, will not say no to any dish without tasting it.

Ginger Garlic Paste recipe doesn’t require much introduction since everyone knows that it is very simple to do.It is purely and purely for beginners who has just now stepped into kitchen for cooking.  But, it is an essential ingredient in every home and most of our Indian dishes has Ginger Garlic Paste in it. Ginger Garlic Paste is cheaper in stores too.

When I started to prepare Ginger Garlic Paste at home, I found the fresh flavor in it, which we cannot see in store bought bottles. Ginger and Garlic aids in digestion when we add in our food.
