Recipe by luvinlif2k

Chai is easy to make and wonderful to enjoy. It is often enjoyed after a meal of Curry. This particular recipe, known as Chiah (pronounced "chee-ah") is one of many variations served in Southern Asia and some parts of Africa. This recipe is from one of my favorite books: Extending the Table and was contributed by Selma Unruh.

This was so soothing! I made this after a very difficult day at work, and it was so calming and smoothing. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
