Servings: 2 servings
fine mesh strainer
Optional but recommended:
*Soy milk is the best dairy-free option to make vegan Masala Chai. I have tried making it with other milks such as almond, rice and oat milk, and soy milk has always worked best to make this drink as good and creamy as possible. I do not recommend substituting with another milk, but oat milk also works fine if you are allergic to soy.
**The cardamom has to be slightly opened in order to get the flavour out of it. To open your cardamom, gently bite into it or squeeze it between your thumb and forefinger to crack it open.
***I recommend using jaggery sugar for the best result, but you can substitute with brown sugar, maple syrup, or agave syrup. Keep in mind jaggery sugar is slightly less sweet than other sweeteners, so you would have to use slightly more sweetener than the recommended amount.
