Chai tea latte

The intricacy of East Indian finery is stunning, and when a friend of mine invited me to her upcoming Wedding, I could not resist getting a few items of my own! A tummy full of pakoras, I couldn't stop looking over the beautiful pieces that we had just picked out as I headed home.

The neckline accenting the earrings: (yes, this was taken on the bus)

Matching bangles were a necessity:

And the fabric for my head covering:

Chai Tea Latte
Whole cloves can be purchased in the ethnic food section of most supermarkets. A spice typically used in East Indian curries, it is also found in desserts like gingerbread.

Serves two

1. In a small saucepan, pour 1 and a 1/2 cups of water. Throw in a chai tea bag, a tablespoon of whole cloves, and 1/4 cup of sugar.
2. Bring to boiling.
3. Add a 1 and a 1/2 cups of milk, and allow the mixture to foam up.
4. Pour the latte through a small strainer into 2 mugs.

Of course, I'd love to share :)

The selection was incredible, and after seeing many Olympic figure skating outfits with strong East Indian influences, I'm thinking of rocking the top with skinny jeans this summer!
