☕️Chai has become one of my favorite drinks ever since I became a proper adult has been a properly brewed cup of chai also known as karak and how my family calls it doodh patti ( tea leaves brewed in full cream milk 😋).
☕️Away from home there are very few places that do chai correctly either it’s too bitter😖, too 💧watery, too overdone with spices till it tastes like a herbal🍃 cough infusion 😳or just plain bland. Cupaghawa is one of those very few places that manages to get it right every time and if you pair it with one of their amazing milk cakes the result is deliciousness 🤪.
☕️So here is to chai fans everywhere hope your next ☕️cup is just as delicious 😋p.s (this is not a sponsored post I genuinely enjoy the chai and the desserts here 😋).
☕️P.P.S How do you guys like your chai? Share some of your favorite chai recipes (yes there is such a thing 😉) with me 😘
☕️Any trip to Dubai Mall for me is so not complete without a refuel at @papparotiuae 😋☕️ ok so I’ll admit it as much as I love my lattes, (that is from my years in California before that the only coffee I knew was the Bahadurabad wali Nescafé Espresso which was actually frothy milk with instant coffee and a drizzle of cream on top in a stryrofoam cup that I would always invariably bite through it was so flimsy 😳).
☕️I am at heart a huge chai fan ✨and I don’t mean the overly sweet westernized chai latte or chai tea mainstream coffee chains try to pass off as a weak replacement of the real thing, by which I mean quintessential Desi Doodh Patti –chai☕️
Ok for people that don’t know chai means tea, so when you call it chai tea that literally means tea tea 🙄. It’s just chai people just ask for chai any Desi will get what you are saying, on the other hand if you ask them for chai tea they will just look at you like you like what the F***🤨.
☕️My love💞and insatiable craving for chai is something that I have inherited from my mother👩🏻 who needs her two mugs of steaming, burn your tongue off, rich, creamy doodh patti chai (my mom is a chai connoisseur guys) And while I may not be as picky when it comes to my cuppa I have to admit a poorly made cup of tea does piss me off 😡.
☕️Which is why I was thrilled to bits when I chanced upon the papparoti franchise 🤩. Not only do they have mouth watering buns (read calorific disaster which will require atleast 2 hours in the gym not the measly 30 min jog that I kid myself into believing will burn off the 1000 calorie damage I do when I eat out 😖). They actually have proper Desi chai ☕️🤩I mean the real deal with elaichi and saffron versions 😍 in a proper mug ❣️not a 2 sip and it’s empty measly tea cup I mean which legit Desi, brown person drinks chai in a dainty tea cup??
☕️And no I’m not referring to the “cutting chai” I never really got the point behind that one to be honest 🤨. Ok so back to the topic ➡️this is the as close as you will get to the beloved Desi doodh patti that you get at the chai dhabas at Bukhari guys trust me on this👊🏻this chai is mom approved ✨( I brought her here in her last trip and after she berated me about how she could make chai for the whole family for a week back home at the price of one cup here) she proclaimed it delicious😋So it not only has my approval it has my moms seal of approval which basically means this place has it’s very own desi moms version of a Michelin👩🏻🍳 star🌟. So what are you waiting for❓Head on over for a bun and the yummy milk tea and take your moms too 😘
