Kashmiri Kehwa

Ingredients to make Kashmiri Kehwa

  • 2 tsp Kashmiri green tea or Kehwa tea leaves
  • 4 pinches of saffron strands
  • 2 to 3 cardamoms, slightly crushed
  • 8 to 10 almonds, blanched and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 inch cinnamon stick
  • 2 to 3 cloves
  • 2 tbsp sugar or as per taste
  • 3 cups water

How to make Kashmiri Kehwa

  1. Bring the 4 cups of water to a rolling boil.
  2. Add in cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. Add 1/2 tsp leaves in each cup.
  3. Pour over the tea leaves and keep covered to infuse. Or add the tea leaves straight into the pan, cover and turn off flame.
  4. Dissolve the saffron in a little water separately.
  5. Strain the tea and add the saffron liquid together with almonds.
  6. Serve hot.

My Tip:

Use good quality kashmiri tea. For blanching the almonds, just add them in hot water, peel and slice thinly.
