Viral: Butter Chai In Agra Has Left Netizens Confused

Is there anything more comforting than wrapping our hands around a piping hot cup of chai? A chai lover would say, no. No matter what day, season or situation there might be, one cup of chai with some tidbits to munch on can set everything right for a chai lover. Speak to a chai connoisseur and he’ll even tell you ten different ways of brewing a cup of tea. Be it with less or no milk, more milk, a hint of spices, some would prefer less or no sweet, and so on. But the classic ingredients for a desi chai remains the same - water, tea leaves, sugar and milk. But have you tried the latest recipe of chai that comes with oodles of butter? Yes, you read that right. 

Recently, a video of a street vendor is going viral wherein he is making ‘butter chai’. Shared by Instagram handle @eatthisagra, the Reel is about how he gives a completely new spin to the staple desi chai. The short video begins with the vendor boiling some milk. Then he adds tea leaves, sugar, masala and finishes with a whole blob of butter in the chai! After stirring and boiling it well, he serves the chai in a kulhad (earthen pot) topped with some haldi.
