Can anyone give me a recipe for proper Indian style Chai like you get on the streets.

Sweet, milky and slightly spicy. Yum. I tried to ask while I was in India but nobody would tell me what spices are in it.

I'm thinking its got ginger, cardamom and maybe cinnamon but wouldn't know quantities what else or how much. Or method.

Hope someone can help! I'm thirsty.

Cheers

Oh my God you simply have to try the Chai Latte from Cafe Nero, seriously its amazing!!!!!As for recipes afraid I dont have a clue!!!!!I lived with an Indian girl a couple of years back and she used to make this other divine drink which was milk, rose syrup and these weird seed things which expanded when in water and looked kinda like frogspawn, do you happen to know what they are called? This stuff was delicious and had really amazing results on your skin!!!Oh my God, I cant wait to go to India this summer!

Do you think they were pomegranite seeds? When you cut open a pomegranite (I think thats what I'm thinking of) the seeds look a bit like frogspawn!
