In the honour of Kashmir being the topic for the MHE Inspiration Series this month we're sharing a delicious Kahwa recipe here on our blog.
Kahwah (pronounced kehva) is a green tea traditionally drunk in the Kashmir Valley, Northen Pakistan, Central Asia and Afghanistan. Nowadays it's also gathering a steady global following. Kahwah is made by adding various spices to a pot of boiling green tea. The flavours are brought out best by adding a generous spoonful of sugar to your hot cuppa.
4 tsp kashmiri green tea
4 pinches of saffron (kesar) strands
2 cardamoms (elaichi), slightly crushed
8 almonds (badam), blanched and chopped
12 mm (1/2") piece cinnamon (dalchini)
2 cloves (laung / lavang)
2 tbsp sugar
Kehwa is great for immunity, relieving headaches and maintaining fluid levels in the body.
