To make masala chai, start by grating a piece of fresh ginger and crushing a cinnamon stick. Put ginger and cinnamon in a medium saucepan, add 3 1/2 cups water and bring the mixture to a boil. When the mixture bubbles, lower the heat and let the liquid simmer for 20 minutes. When 1/3 of the liquid has evaporated, move the pot to a cool burner and stir in 6 teaspoons of loose black tea or add 6 black tea bags. Then add 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom and let the tea steep for 2 minutes. Finally, move the pot back to the hot burner and add 2 3⁄4 cups milk and ¼ cup sugar. Boil the mixture on medium heat for 5 minutes before straining and serving the chai. For tips on how to make butter, read on!
