A majority of people in our country are in deep love with chai and this fact cannot be denied. They prefer a specific cuppa that suits their taste and almost everyone has a different way to prepare a cup of tea. While some people prefer a stronger taste with less milk and sugar, others are happy with chai having more milk and sugar. Moreover, there is a section of people that put spices to their tea as well, just to add some zing.
But, have you ever tried making your tea like dum biryani? Hold on. Don't get shocked just as yet. A video of how to make "dum ki chai" is doing the rounds of the internet and social media users are literally exhausted after watching it as the process is so long and tiring. Don't miss out on it.
The now-viral video was shared by a page called Spoons of Delhi on Instagram. In the short clip, someone showed how to make "dum ki chai". First, the person added some water to a cup and put a muslin cloth over it. Next, they put some tea leaves, sugar, ginger, cloves, cardomom and cinnamon on it. 3 cups of water were then poured into a pressure cooker and the cup with the muslin cloth was put inside to boil for 5-6 minutes.
