How to make Pani Puri
Grind mint leaves, green chili, and ginger in a blender till smooth.
Mix this paste with rest of the ingredients, except Bondi.
3. Sugar to taste, of course, general measure – 2 tsp sugar. (If using milkmaid, then need to be more careful with sugar.
4. Tea Powder (Not leaf plz) – 4 Tsp (I put 5 tsp as I like a little stronger tea).
– Make a decoction of tea powder by adding 3 cups of water into 4 tsp of tea powder. Cover the vessel to prevent escaping steam. Boil it for around 20-25 minutes on low heat until left with half a cup of filtered decoction.
-On another burner, boil 4 cups of whole milk till reduced to 1.5 cups. Now add four tablespoons of khoya or milkmaid to it. Boil it till khoya mixes with the liquid entirely and makes it thick. Stir it frequently so that it blends with milk quickly.
-Now add the half cup of filtered decoction to it thus making it the last 2 cups of world-famous Hyderabadi Irani chai\tea.
Yeppp….a lot of work there for some Tea. Do remember that Irani chai is 3/4th whole creamy milk with khoya and 1/4th tea decoction. The color is light because of more liquid in it.
