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.
opos tea masala chai instant


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.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes. One thing they have in common is the inclusion of coconut, which makes food more rich and flavorful, though the time of inclusion may vary!

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?

Taste food from south Indian cuisine and you would know it yourself. The best thing is south Indians make the most yummiest of food in the simplest of way while not tempering much with the nutritional portion.
