I also have tried the Queenella Brand pre-cleaned chitterlings.
They are not as clean as Aunt Bessie and they only come in 2
lb packages (at least that is the only size I have seen),
whereas Aunt Bessie comes in 4 or 5 lb package.

Subject: RE: save a bundle make your own chai teas.

This is a recipe that my 10 year old daughter LOVES!!

You need:

1 small box of elbow macaroni
1 8 ounce package of shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 small jar of cheez whiz
1 egg
1/4 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of butter
Paprika (to taste)
salt and pepper (to taste)

Preheat oven to 300. Boil the macaroni and drain. Put the
macaroni noodles back in the pot and add the cheez whiz
(take the top of and microwave it for 30 seconds - it pours
easier). Add 1 slightly beaten egg, 1/4 cup of milk and
butter. Mix this together until all ingredients are mixed.
Add seasonings (feel free to taste). Spray a 1 quart glass
dish (Corning, etc.) with non stick spray. Pour 1/3 of the
macaroni mixture in the bottom. Add 1/3 of the shredded
cheese. Repeat this layering step ending with the shredded
cheese on top. Top with paprika. Bake covered in the oven
at 325 for about 20 minutes. Take the top off and bake for
10 more minutes.

Makes plenty.

How about a recipe for some good baked pork chops w/gravy?
I need some serious help. I love to cook but sometimes I
mess up on my meals. My husband grew up on soul food (his
family is from mississippi) and he likes to eat. I was
spoiled rotten growing up because I didn't have to do
anything but eat and sleep so when I got married I didn't
know how to boil water...and I still can't cook eggs.

I have gotten so much better, but I still have problems such
as burning my food or my gravy not turning out right. I have
mastered my greens...Praise GOD! My husband tells me that
it's so good it taste like meat. smile. My lasagna is pretty
good but I could always try different things. Please help.
We are a young christian couple just trying to stay focused

How I Make Gujarati Chai for my Parents

Hi, my name is Neha Jadiya and I live in Toronto. I was
wondering if I could add to your list of chai recipes.
This is how I make gujarati chai for my parents:

(For one person)

1)Put half a cup water and half a cup
milk in a pot.
2)Add a quarter a teaspoon chai
masala (this depends on how strong
it is).
3)Add one teaspoon sugar.
4)Add one teaspoon loose tea (or
one teabag)
5)Add a little kesar.
6)Bring all these to a boil on
MAXIMUM. Turn down to MEDIUM
and simmer for a while.
7)Serve and enjoy!


Simple one cup chai
Shyamala Parameswaran

I put a mug/cup of water to boil.

Add a 3/4 inch piece of ginger, crushed with
a mallet to it and let the water boil a couple
of minutes (to get the ginger essence in),
then pour over tea-leaves (amt. depends on
what tea leaves are used - I use Darjeeling
and throw in one and a half heaped tsp) and
let steep two mins. or until leaves are
settled at the bottom of the pot.

Pour into mug add milk, sugar and enjoy!


Romantic Chai:


Put 2 ilaichis in water.
Put one thin slice of ginger
Let it boil.
Add Taj Mahal tea
Add milk (or micorwave it


1) When it is raining. Place yourself
at place from where you can see
shafts of water connecting sky with

Play the song or sing if you can:
"Rim-jhim gire sawan..."

2) When you're snowbound. Light the
fire (in fireplace) Once again watch
the earth getting dressed in fresh


BTW: I'd marry someone who loves
tea !!


Chai for one person
Manish Chhatralia

Here is the method of how to make chai as
you requested:

1. Add water in pan.
2. Add sugar, tea leaves and spices.
3. Bring to boil and simmer for a
minute or so.
4. Add milk.
5. Bring to boil and simmer for 3-5
6. Strain tea in teapot.

To make chai for one person, one needs:

1 cup of water, see 1. above.
1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of
tea leaves and 1/4 teaspoon of
spices, see 2. above. (depending on
how sweet, strong and spicy)
1/4 cup of milk, see 4. above.
(depending on how milky)

NOTE: this tea is made with water but
equally can be made with milk.

Spices can generally be
proportioned as follows:

A. 1 one 1.5 inch cinnamon stick.
B. 3-4 cardamoms (with shell).
C. 2-3 peppercorns.
D. 2-3 cloves
E. 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder.
Grind into a powder the items A-D
and add E.

In winter fresh ginger chai is very good, add
1cm2 chopped ginger with the spices. Can
also add pepper at the same time to give a
warm feeling.

The spice list I mentioned is not complete.
We usually add about 10 to 12 different
types of spices for chai ground together. I
am sorry I do not know the name of them in

I hope this helps you,

Manish Chhatralia.

1) Make a fresh pot of tea (assam works
well) and transfer this to a thermos,so it
stays hot. Also, please be sure that this
thermos is not made in China, until they
improve their human rights record.

2) Mix together the following in a

about 1.5 minutes (until just before boiling):

1 heaping tablespoon of sugar
1/4 cup of milk (highfat)
1/4 teaspoon chai masala powder

Make chai from scratch
Paul Ganesh

Why not try and make chai from scratch?
You can vary the following according to
taste. I love the stuff as an
alternative. In India almost every street corner
has a "chai" stall where its popularity makes
even the most modest business a going concern :-)

1/3 water
2/3 milk
1 teaspoon of tea for each cup
measure (plus a bit extra) freshly
chopped ginger
cardamom pods
a little piece clove (optional)
enough sugar to make it sweet

Throw it all into a suacepan cold and bring
slowly to a boil. When boiling turn up the
heat and swirl it around until it reaches the
desired strength and the spices provide a
kick. Strain it into small glasses.


Microwaved Indian Chai
Ibarahim Al-Rashdan

The secret of making a good cup of Indian
Chai from a regular tee bag:

Crush two peices of cardamon, add
to it little safrone (optional) add the
cushed mixture to the tee in the
tee-bag after opening restaple the

Put your cup of water in the
microwave for two minutes (until the
water boils, then take the cup out
add the tee bag immediately, move
the tee-bag until the required strength.

Then add your evaporated milk to
required taste.
Your instant Indian chai is ready

Enjoy it, please let me know if you have
better way to improve the microwaved
Indian chai.



Masala spice Chai


(Masala=spice Chai=tea)


3 - 4 Tea Spoons/4 Teabags of good
tea (Darjeeling/Orange
A chunk of dry ginger (or fresh
ginger if dry isn't handy)
3 - 4 cardmom pods, crushed (See

Note below)
3 Cloves
Small piece of cinnamon
A Tsp of SOANP
(I don't know the name. Can be
found at Indian grocers. Also indian
restaurants keep this for your
pleasure after dinner. Looks like
cummin seeds)
1 or 2 whole black peppers
Sugar to taste
Milk (at least Vitamin D, low fat
won't do)


Bring 2 cups of water to boil
(microwave or otherwise). Add all

the ingredients and boil again for
about 15 seconds. Let stand for a

Warm milk in a pot.

Filter tea into cups.

Add milk and sugar. That's IT.

If you don't like to spend much time, mix all
the spices and coarsley grind them. Boil
water and add tea and a tsp of this ground
spices. Rest is as above.

Note: Since cardmom is expensive I peel
them and add the skin to my stock of tea
leaves. This gives a distinct aroma. Of
course you boil the skin with water.


Simple Indian Milk Tea
Padma Talasila

It's very simple.

For one cup tea :

tea bags : 2
water: 2/3 cups
milk: 1/2 cup
masala: 1 cardomom or small
piece of crushed ginger
sugar: 1 teaspoon

Put tea bags in water and let it
boil vigorously for 5 minutes.
Pour in milk and add sugar. Let it
boil until the milk rises.
Add crushed cardomom pods or
Serve hot.

If you use ginger, take it out of tea
before drinking. You can also use
teapowder in which case, you need to
filter tea as you would do for coffee.

For better taste, tea should be
boiled for long time. The more you boil,
the more creamy it will be.

I find that tea powder is better than
tea bags. The amount of sugar can be
varied with your taste.

Iced Coffeehouse Chai
Judith Favia
At my coffeehouse, we make
iced Chai Tea
fresh for each customer, using
Republic of
Tea Chai (brewed fresh or
brewed and then
iced). It is made exactly like
Iced Thai or
Vietnamese coffee: 2 oz of
condensed milk with 8 oz of
tea. You have to
stir harder for iced, but both
are delicious.
Thank you for including our
Cahoots Coffee
Bar recipe for iced chai. I have
been reading
of those at home. We use
Republic of Tea
Chai because it has the spices
mixed into
the tea leaves, and the
condensed milk combines the
milk and
sugar. Our recipe makes it
easy for our staff
to make good quality chai
every time,
without haveing to measure
spices and boil
