How to Make Masala Chai Eggnog

HideShow Media
Take a pan and pour heavy cream, cinnamon stick, unsweetened condensed milk, cardamom, ginger, cloves, peppercorns, and nutmeg. Before it boils, turn off the heat and add black tea teabags. Leave the tea bags in the liquid mixture for three to five minutes, depending upon how strong you want the tea flavour to be.
In a medium bowl, add egg yolks and sugar. Whisk until they become pale yellow in colour, before further adding vanilla extract and salt. Now combine both the mixtures and strain them through a sieve to remove any solid spices. At this point, add rum or brandy as per your choice.
In another bowl, take egg whites and whisk them until they form soft peaks. Now add sugar to the whisked egg whites and beat them for another 30 seconds.
Then, take a silicone spatula and add 1/3rd of whipped egg whites with the egg yolk mixture. Mix it until it softens. Now take the rest of the mixture and gently fold it into egg yolk mixture. Keep mixing it gently till it gets a light consistency.
At this point, you can adjust the sweetness level of the eggnog. Pour the eggnog in a pitcher along with the masala chai mixture. Garnish with grounded cinnamon and serve!
