A cup of tea is often a slice of life for a lot of people in India. I am not much of tea-lover myself. However, a lot of my friends and family members are. Eventually, I end up making a lot of chai for them, time and again. Well, not just tea. You know how it goes in each of our families. Sometimes, there’s a strong liking to drink tea with an add-on snack. You can savour your ‘chai moment‘ clubbing it with a plateful of Paneer Bread Sticks.
