Food blogger makes chai in coconut shell in recipe video
Chai is one of the most essential beverages in the daily life of a desi person. Yes, you can argue that you are a coffee person and put forth reasons about why it is better than chai. But ask any hardcore chai lover, you’ll know why it is an emotion and not just a drink. That’s why when a food blogger from Uttarakhand shared a recipe for ‘coconut tea’, the internet was visibly concerned.
Shared on Instagram by Kavita Rai, a food blogger from Haldwani in Uttarakhand, the video shows the recipe of making chai in a coconut shell. The clip starts with a close-up shot of Rai putting a clean coconut shell on the stove. She proceeds to put tea leaves, water and brown sugar and prepares the chai. After a few seconds, the chai is made.
“Tea in a coconut shell,” read the caption.
The video gained over 873k likes and tons of reactions. People had a lot to say about the recipe. While some pointed out how the use of coconut shells can be a fire hazard, others wrote about how using the coconut shell in a desi household will make them get a scolding from their mother.
