I love chai, and I have several recipes but I'm always looking for more. The local coffee place that makes the best chai uses a mix and the final product is creamy but low in fat. The recipes I have, that are just as creamy, require sweetended condensed milk which makes it rather high in fat. I have tried the low fat/ fat free versions of cond. milk at the stores but they add a strange too sweet taste to it. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,

Make your base really strong. Sweeten as you like and then use evaporated milk. I know it's not low in fat but it's delicious. It's the way a someone from Bangladesh had made it for me once.

Hi Svadhisthana,

Just for you.

Masala Chai
(Spiced Tea)
(serves 2)

1 pint water
A 1 inch stick of cinnamon
8 cardamom pods
8 whole cloves
6 fl. oz milk
6 teaspoons sugar (or to taste)
3 teaspoons any unperfumed, loose black tea

Put the water in a saucepan. Add the cinnamon, cardammon, and cloves and bring to a boil. Cover, turn heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the milk and sugar and bring to a simmer again. Throw in the tea leaves, cover, and turn off the heat. After 2 minutes, strain the tea into two cups and serve immediately.
