Everyone has a way of making Chai Karak in the UAE, each house adds a certain extra ingredient that makes it taste different from house to house. The one we make at home isn’t actually my recipe. And the secret to the taste we get is actually the tea we use. We buy it from a lovely local lady that sells many food creations from her home business, and her tea is of great quality, therefore produces a great cup of Chai Karak!
The instructions come with the packet of tea leaves that we purchase regularly from her, and they never fail to warm our tummies with a fresh cup of milky chai karak.
There’s been a lot of demand from you guys regarding the making of Chai Karak, so here’s a step-by-step post about it guys! Lets get Karak Making!
