Every morning in INDIA started the same way – with Chai and prayer. I found out that one’s day goes smoother when you start it at peace. And also that I am not as lactose intolerant as I had believed.
I’ve made several attempts at Chai since I’ve been home and am pretty close to the yummy brew I experienced in INDIA. Here’s the recipe if you’re feeling up to it –
2 cups water
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp ginger
2 tsp black tea
2.5 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom
Bring water, milk and ginger to a boil then remove from heat. Add sugar, tea and cardamom. Let sit for 3 – 6 minutes, then using a strainer, pour into a teapot.
Drink slowly, savoring the spices. Pretend you’re cool and are hanging in INDIA. Feel superior. Realize that’s not a Kingdom value and pray for forgiveness. Receive the grace. Ahhh, PEACE. Works every time.
