What people really do not come up with their quest for their thirst and hunger. There are still a lot of ideas about how much the Bronze Age is still impressive. Especially in this regard, those people were distinguished who had problems with clean drinking water. For example, came up with a rather interesting recipe – Nong chai.
Yes, you understood correctly. Everything is logical – but everything else is growing rather bad. Yes, and with a normal water trouble. Moreover, it is not possible to use water. Long-term boiling helps.
What did the disputed territory of Kashmir come up with? They began to add salt, milk and soda to tea. That is, intuitively (or empirically) realized to neutralize increased mineralization with the simplest and most accessible means. The result is Nong chai – It was a drink that was brewed much more than the tea. But the taste, mildly, is not very. Unless, of course, you have been taught to him since childhood.
But even grown on Nong chae It has tried to improve the taste. Therefore, we began to add affordable spices — cardamom, cinnamon and crushed pistachios. Yes, it is easier than here or in Europe.
Concrete recipe Nong chai as follows:
- 2 teaspoons of dried tea leaves;
- 1 teaspoon salt;
- 1 teaspoon soda;
- 2 cups of milk;
- 1 pinch of cinnamon;
- 4-5 kernels of cardamom and as many pistachios;
- half a liter of water.
Tea, spices (except pistachios), soda, salt and water are placed in a saucepan. Or the word “SAMAVAR” in Kashmir. Yeah, you heard right – it was him. Only copper and covered with all sorts of calligraphic paintings. It’s a good thing. But we digress. In short, put everything listed in “SAMAVAR” and bring to a boil. After that add milk and mix. Strain, remove tea leaves and spices (if cooked in a saucepan). Pour into cups, add crushed pistachios. Everything. Got a milky-pink liquid with a specific taste – Nong chai.
Thirst quenches well, prepares quickly. Plus, soda promotes faster and more efficient extraction of nutrients from tea leaves. Take a recipe for armament.
And now about the sad. Not so long ago, a study of consumption Nong chai and stomach cancer. Too much soda is not good for mucous membranes. So, if you still use this recipe, try to abuse it. Everything is good in moderation.
