About Chai Wali

I have wanted to write a blog for a long time to share my passion for cooking. My friends often complain that my food pictures on social media makes them hungry! (this is usually the case when my family are cooking for me). I thought the best way for me to share my passion for food is to share my recipes with you all and make cooking easy and fun rather than a chore!

So here is a little bit about me:IMG_4462

I was born and brought up in Yorkshire however my ethnicity is Indian and Pakistani. The one thing that these three places have in common is their love for tea!

I love drinking tea and drink roughly 5-6 cups a day. Since the age of 8, my brothers would ask me to make tea and although I did dread it at times, I’ve (kinda) grown to like it.  I love all kinds of tea, but my all time favourite is masala chai.

If you have seen the movie Slum Dog Millionaire, you will have probably heard the term “chai wala” (tea boy). Chai wali translates to tea girl. I guess that’s why this site is called Chai Wali. What is your favourite tea?
