Rajasthan ki Rajwadi Chai, that is the Tea made with Full Milk & Saffron/Kesar Strands is famous all over the world.
I had this tea in my childhood when I visited Fort Rajwada in Jaipur, Rajasthan. It is said that the royal family there had this tea on a regular basis. Saffron and Full Milk being very good for health, they believed this tea helps in keeping them strong during Monsoon & Winter Season.
It is a very simple, fuss free and quick recipe.
