yemeni recipes – yemeni chai

I thought I would go ahead and every few days share a yemeni recipe I like and use myself. InshaAllah today will be yemeni chai (which tastes the same as somali chai)…

5 cups water
4 whole cardamoms, crushed
4 whole cloves
1 stick of cinnamon
slice of ginger (optional)
4 teaspoon black tea (or 7 teabags tied together)
1 1/2 cups milk

1. In a stove top kettle, add the water, spices and ginger.
When it comes to a boil, add the tea bags. Let boil 1 minute and add the milk. Reduce, add sugar and let it come to a boil again.  Strain and serve.
