How to make tea- With jaggery -Gud ki chai- hot beverages recipes

      Todays recipe is not a big deal , but definitely worth a post for tea lovers.I dont call myself a tea lover and have umpteen cups of tea each day. But I do begin my mornings with a hot cup of tea. As the mornings are really busy and always in a hurry to cook breakfasts and lunch and send the kids to school, I dont spend a lot of time making tea. But there are some mornings or sometimes even in rainy afternoons, I crave for some nice flavoured tea. I have it in leisure,bliss!!
      One of my friends back in India used to serve me this tea with jaggery. She used to say that in her native place in Maharashtra, jaggery tea or gud ki chai was quite popular. Years later, A friend in Singapore also served me this tea. Since then, I make this sometimes though not frequently.I decided to post this for my readers. Ginger and cardamom adds more flavour to this tea!!
