It was a cold Minnesota day.... (yeah, just like all of the rest of the days in Minnesota from October to April!) we had just gotten a foot of snow and schools were closed..so, I called my friend who happens to be married to an Indian guy, and who happens to be an a great Indian cook, and who happens to live on my street!
She trekked over in her suped up minivan (with snow tires of course) and I said "want to teach me how to make Chai?"
"Sure!" she said. So, we went to my cupboard to hunt for ingredients. I am somewhat proud to say I was only missing one!
Well my friend, if you are reading this, I went to the store and got ALL the ingredients and made it by myself today!
