What is so Special about OPOS dum Tea?

Well, pressure cooking helps retain all the flavors in the tea - use whatever spices you may want to add to your tea and pack a punch with the most flavorful tea. The OPOS tea reminds me time and again of the tea I had at Shirdi Sai temple. The aroma of cardamom in the tea made it more flavorful.

Let's get started with our OPOS tea, also known as dum tea or masala chai.
OPOS is the trademark of Rama Krishnan, which has revolutionized cooking and is no less than culinary magic.

Remember, in order to learn OPOS recipe basics, you have got to start with a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker. To check if your cooker is standardized for OPOS recipes, add 1/4th cup of water and cook it. If the first whistle comes between 1 and 2 minutes, you are all set for OPOS - one pot one shot. Never start with any OPOS recipe without learning the basics and completing the OPOS lessons.

Ingredients for 1 cup
1/2 cup- water (you may vary the water: milk ratio---choice is yours..if you like it milkier, increase the milk amount and if you like it watery and light, reduce the milk to water ratio)
1/2 cup- milk
1 tsp- tea powder(I use Waghbakri)
Cardamom powder
Ginger- fresh or powdered
You may choose spices of your choice.
I make it sugarfree. So I do not add any sweetener in my tea.

How to make OPOS tea

Make sure your cooker is standardized for OPOS recipes.
Put all ingredients in the cooker and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Even 1 whistle is good to go. But I wait for 2 whistles to let all the flavors immerse in my tea.
Ever since I learned to make OPOS dum tea, I have scaled the recipe up for 3-4 persons. Make sure you do not scale the recipe for more than 3 cups in a 3-liter pressure cooker. Else, there would be a lot of spewing. You can always take a bigger pressure cooker for the same once you are an OPOS expert.
Trust my words for it - you will get the most flavorful tea with one pot one shot. If you have a couple of guests at home, let the pressure cooker give you the world's best tea.
Get set to receive compliments from all your loved ones for serving them the most aromatic cup of tea. Are you ready?
Making dum tea at home only takes a 3-liter pressure cooker, tea powder, milk, water, and spices of your choice.
