How to make Dishoom Chai with your Naan Roll 'at-home' cookery kit

There are many varieties of Chai. The kind we make at Dishoom is the sort of spicy, sweet Chai you will find at Bombay's innumerable tapris (street stalls), normally poured with great dexterity and skill from arm's length into a small, stout glass. The powerful concoction of milk, sugar and caffeine is what keeps the city running.

House Chai is a café staple at Dishoom and, in the video below, you may find Head-Babu Kavi making Masala Chai with utmost ease. Chef Naved’s Chai spice and loose-leaf tea mix is included with every Naan Roll Kit, so you may make your very own batch, and enjoy its warming comfort and satisfying spice in your own kitchen.

Permit Room Cambridge: A tribute to 1970s Bombay

Arched into the cobbled lane of Trinity Street, behind a mustard yellow door, an all-day bar-café cuts loose.
