About Jaggery Tea Recipe

This warm and comforting Jaggery Tea (Gud ki Chai) is a healthier alternative to regular milk tea. Making jaggery milk tea can be a bit tricky if you don’t consider or know the factors that can curdle and spoil the tea.

The first time I tried making jaggery tea with milk at home, it curdled immediately. At that time, I was unaware that milk can curdle if jaggery is added to the hot milk directly.

After trying different recipes, I’ve finally found the right way to make jaggery milk tea properly, and now I prepare it regularly at home. I enjoy the rich flavor of jaggery not only in tea but also in various other dishes.

So, here I am sharing a simple step-by-step recipe on how to make jaggery tea at home. Try this comforting mug of hot tea!
