it's cozy in here
A couple of good friends recently returned from a trip to India, and she copied down the recipe for masala chai that she learned to make while she was there. It is so good! The glass jars on the counter are spice jars I got at World Market for 99 cents each and the little mortar and pestle came from there, too. The green cardamom pods and cloves are first ground together before added to the water for the tea. If you've never smelled green cardamom, you don't know what you're missing! I learned from a lady at a middle eastern grocery that you can also add them to your coffee grounds as you brew your coffee for a different kind of treat!
On a cold Winter afternoon, this is my kind of cozy!
