Desi doodh patti – Pakistani tea


This is a desi recipe for Pakistani tea which my father has been drinking for 65 years. He loves it and so do i, esp when i need to dip my rusk cake! It’s a treat when I have a cold/flu as English tea does nothing for me.
I have been making this from when I was five! So it’s a long traditional thing in my house!

1cup milk
2-3tbsp water
1tea bag (pj tips)
1&1/2tsp sugar
1-2 cardamom seeds optional

In a saucepan add a little water
Let it boil then add the tea bag,cardamom seeds and sugar,boil for few seconds and add milk. Bring it to boil and lower the heat and cook for 5mins.
Take off and serve
