Check out the viral video shared by Selena Gomez’s fan page, Selenators for Gomez on Youtube.
In the video, Selena is seen making the classic Masala Chai. She refers to it as ‘Chai Tea’. She initially is seen chopping ginger, adding three spoons of tea leaves, four cloves, and cardamom powder. Eventually, as she tries to add cardamom, she repeatedly fails in simply pronouncing it. She is seen struggling to pronounce the word, ‘cardamom’. Padma Lakshmi guided her through the process of boiling water, adding tea leaves and spices, and bringing the mixture to a boil. The duo also used brown sugar and honey in the recipe. Selena was then introduced to the tea strainer and it was the first time she had seen one.
Not only did Selena come up with a delicious hot Masala Chai. She also learned how to make scrumptious prawn curry and rice. She was also taught how to eat the prawns and rice with her hands in true Indian desi style.
