No Churn Kadak (Strong) Masala Chai Ice Cream – Five Ingredients

5 from 1 vote

Easy masala chai ice cream

Masala chai ice cream! For me, chai should be either made kadak or not at all.  Kadak means strong so I like a bolder cup of chai. How do you get a cup of kadak chai?  Key is chai masala, add extra tea and boil it longer.  Also, in Western cultures milk is normally added to tea after tea is boiled with water.  For a good cup of what I’ll call real chai the milk is added to the tea and water to boil together on the stove.  This all contributes to a stronger and more flavorful cup of chai.

Making traditional chai is key

Chai masala is a big component of this and can easily be found online or in Indian stores. Generally chai masala inclues cloves, cardamom, black pepper, cinnamon and ginger.  A lot of homes make their own chai masala blend at home with their own preferences/rations of spices.  I’ve used my mom’s homemade mix for this recipe and will separately add a post later in the week on her recipe.
