Spiced Chai Phirni



In a saucepan take 1/2pint of milk, add 1 teabag (I used Yorkshire gold Mr Spoonfuls favourite tea), add few cloves, two small cinnamon sticks, two whole cardamom pods (be sure to bash and bruise these a bit to release flavour) and 3tbs of sugar. Bring this mixture to the boil. 

Then add half a sachet of Royal Chai (ginger flavour) and simmer for a few minutes. 

Turn off the heat and leave the mixture to infuse the spices.

In a separate pan add 50g rice flour and add the cooled milk mixture (be sure to strain out the whole spices). 

Stir using a whisk on a low heat until desired consistency and pour into individual ramekins. 

Let it cool and refrigerate.

Meet the Baker
Chins KitchenMy name is Chintal Kakaya, I was born in Mombasa, Kenya and moved to the UK at a very young age. As a child I was surrounded by a close knit community who shared the same passion for food. Whether it was a

get together or festivals ladies from the community would gather round at my childhood home to assist  mum and grandmother to make sweets and savouries to feed large numbers. My mum being the main inspiration especially with baking , I followed in her footsteps and started creating a range of cakes, bakes and desserts.

Determination and passion allowed me to experiment with recipes, blending flavours and spices to create her own unique twist on classic recipes. This is how Chinskitchen was born. A fusion of traditional and modern, most of our creations are free from any artificial flavours and preservatives and all are made with reduced sugar content.

We want you to enjoy these deliciously light and melt in the mouth fragrant nankhatai as much as we enjoy baking each one by hand.

We love hearing from our customers, please contact us with your feedback or questions.

Much Love
