GINGER TEA RECIPE - INJI TEA - HOMEMADE GINGER TEA

Print Friendly and PDF
I love ginger tea / inji tea a lot.. Before marriage, when I was working I used to go with my friend  to a nearby canteen at least twice a day just to have this tea. It was a flavorful , mild and tasty tea.After this , I never had a tea similar to that taste. Last week when I was surfing the net I came across a ginger tea recipe which is a bit different from the usual one we make. I immediately tried it on the same evening.To my surprise, I found its taste similar to the one I had in canteen.. I was very much satisfied ..Though ginger tea is not a special,unique recipe to share with ,  I wanted to have this post in my blog.. So here comes the inji tea recipe with a picture for u all..

Ginger tea

Ingredients:
1 cup - 250ml
  • Boiled Milk – 1 cup
  • Water – 1/2 cup
  • Tea powder – 1.5 tsp ( I used 3 roses tea powder)
  • Ginger – 2 inches (crush a little)
  • Cardamom – 1 no ( crush with skin, optional)
  • Sugar – 1.5 – 2 tsp ( depends)
Method:
  • In a wide mouthed bowl, add water and the crushed ginger & cardamom.
  • Allow it to boil for 3 mins in low flame so that the ginger gets cooked in the water and gets a nice flavor.
  • Then add the milk , sugar , tea powder. Allow it to boil for 2 mins in medium flame.
  • Strain the tea sediments and enjoy !!
Serve hot with snacks !!

Note :The ginger should be well cooked before you add the milk and other ingredients.The essence of ginger would be well absorbed into the water..

Hmmm.... How much I love that color..... My favorite, it is too..... I loved adding ginger in my T passionately..... Just recently I stopped, because everyone cautioned me too much is too bad.... But I still indulge at least once a month.... Hugs )))
