Pink Kashmiri tea recipe or nun chai has a rich, thick and creamy texture that can also be a bit buttery. However, it is thin enough to drink. Moreover, the drink comes with a delicious aroma of cardamom and saffron which are both very good for the skin and body. Originally, the drink comes from the beautiful valleys of Kashmir, between the Great Himalayas and Panjal mountains. Since it is cold in Kashmir, having a nutritional drink does wonders for the residents there. From breakfast till after dinner, the pink tea is served and it is usually accompanied with crisp naan or delicious Bakarkhaani. The surprising fact is that many Kashmiri usually drink the tea with salt rather than sugar but it’s highly recommended to at least try the Kashmiri tea in its traditional salty flavor. Hide
