    ¾ cup water, 1 tablespoon Tea powder
  • Following it, sprinkle sugar, crushed cardamom Pour milk to it. No need to stir.
    1 cup Milk, 1 tablespoon Sugar, 2 Cardamom
  • Close the lid and wait until the timer is up. For me no pressure was built so I opened immediately as such.
  • If there is any pressure, you can quick release it and open.
  • Add condensed milk according to your taste preference. If you do not want it too sweet add less. If you are sweet tooth you can add upto 2 tbsp.
    1 tablespoon Condensed milk
  • Mix well and filter.
  • Enjoy immediately as it will cool sooner.



  • If you want to omit condensed milk
  • You can use jaggery, brown sugar too but suggest to add after filtering and mix it to avoid curdling.
  • Low fat milk can also be used.
