For us cellar lovers, nothing equals the comfort of wrapping our hands around a cup of hot chai and enjoying it with a few snacks. No matter the season or the situation, a kadak chai arranges everything! And the best part is, we all have our different ways of doing it. Some might like it with less milk, others with harsh spice and ginger notes, and some might even enjoy it without the sugar. Even though there is no one way to make chai, the essential ingredients still include water, tea leaves, sugar, milk, ginger, and spices. But what if we told you that a new variant of the chai is accompanied by butter? Would you like to try it again?

Recently, a video of a street vendor went viral after his creation of “butter chai”. In a reel uploaded by @eatthisagra, we can see a street vendor making chai with a twist. The video begins with the vendor boiling milk. Then he adds tea leaves, sugar, masala and a drop of butter in the chai! After mixing it well and boiling it well, he serves the chai in a kulhad. According to @eatthisagra, the street vendor is located near Ram Babu, Agra. Take a look at the video here:
Since the video was uploaded, it has garnered one million views, 29.5,000 likes, and hundreds of comments. Many people have shown their dismay at this winery. Some users were quick to even add sarcastic comments saying “he could have added cheese too”. Along with this, many people also said that “they would never try this”. However, some approved of this experience.
Even though this buttery chai has received a lot of mixed reactions, we’d love to hear what you think of this one. Would you do something like this at home? Let us know in the comments below!
