Earlier this week we touched on all of the health benefits that come with turmeric. Here’s great way to incorporate turmeric in your daily life. There is a fine line between a delicious, creamy golden milk and a golden milk that tastes like dirt . As beneficial as turmeric is, a little goes a long way. There is no need to serve a heaping spoon of turmeric in your golden milk. In fact, I’ve had golden milk lattes at a few coffee shops and that’s exactly what it tasted like (too much turmeric).

Fiji Masala Chai

October 18, 2020

Thank you for visiting Savoring Fiji. This was one of the first recipes posted on this site. I can guarantee whenever you visit any Indian home, almost always you are offered a cup of chai, whether it be morning, noon or night.ย  It’s more than just a cup of tea, Chai ‘s comforting warmth brings a homey atmosphere connecting both the house guests and the hosts. It’s also a recipe that changes and fluctuates with each new drinker. No matter how you take your chai, decaf, milky, spicy or sweet, this drink recipe can be personalized for everyone.

My first iteration of this recipe involved a lot more milk. My Aruna Mosi helped walk me through a lighter less milkier version of this recipe. The recipe below calls for canned carnation milk, however in Fiji traditionally milk powder was used. You can choose to use any type of milk you’d like.

I believe chai is just like roti in the sense that you only perfect it when you make it all the time. My Aruna Mosi’s chai is the same delicious cup every time, mine however has “too much ginger, need more sugar, did you add the milk” – type of days! haha.

Join me, make a cup of chai and let’s get started with Savoring Fiji!

Thank you to my one and only mosi, for teaching me this recipe.ย
