Dhaba Style Chai (Tea)

I am a tea lover, that is the first thing I want when I wake up in the morning. Me and family's mood is quite dependent on the morning tea. Specially in winters when it is cold outside, a hot cup of tea in the bed with a quilt over you is one of the best things about winters. At times I want to have the dhaba style tea that has lots of milk, sugar and is quite thick. It is actually quite easy to make at home. For that we will need: 
1) Half Cup Water
2) Half Cup Milk
3) 1 Tbsp Tea leaves
4) 2 Tbsp Sugar
5) A bit of grated ginger( Also add 1 cardamom if you like)
These measurements are for 1 Cup of Tea. 

The process is pretty Simple

Put water in the pan and on high flame, when the water starts to boil add grated ginger. Adding ginger when water is boiling adds more flavour of ginger. After that add tea leaves, sugar and milk. After adding all of these, put the gas on low flame and let the tea cook slowly. Once you see the colour getting a bit darker. Put the flame on high and let it boil, put it on simmer again and then put it on high flame. Repeat the process 2-3 times. This will help thicken the tea and gets cooked properly. Pour it into your favourite cup and enjoy
