The Real Kahwah

The first time I had Kashmiri Kahwah was at Dilli Haat.  I loved it but couldn’t get my hands on the recipe or the leaves.  I next had it in a friend’s house and even posted a picture of it: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Yoga-With-Pragya/279129782153926?ref=hl#!/photo.php?fbid=393815357352034&set=pb.279129782153926.-2207520000.1354508624&type=3&theater.  As you can see this tea comes from a tea bag.  So it was a pleasant surprise when a few days ago I went over to a friend’s house and she made me real authentic Kahwah.  The people in Kashmir drink Kahwah because it builds up the body’s immunity and keeps it warm.  And all those dried fruits will give you the glowing skin that everyone wants.  So here goes:

1.  Take some cardamom, cinnamon and almonds.  Pictured here are the Kahwah leaves as well.

2.  Boil some water and put the Kahwah leaves in.  Crush and add the cardamom as well.  Boil until you can see the color of the water changing and can smell the essence of the cardamoms.

3.  Crush the almonds and put them in the cups/glasses that you’re going to drink in.

4.  Pour the Kahwah and serve :).

And the best part was that my friend had an entire jar of Kahwah leaves sent over the next day, so now I can have it whenever I want.
