Things to know about Kahwa Recipe

The Indian Traditional Cardamom Tea or Kahwa is a Kashmiri tea made with whole spices and almonds. The exotic drink is particularly suitable for cold regions as it is served hot. Though the exact origin of the drink is unknown, the drink is believed to have reached Kashmir from the Yarkand valley in Xinjiang, China. The word “Kahwa” means sweetened tea. In Kashmir, Kahwa is brewed and stored in a traditional copper kettle called “Samovar”. The drink makes an appearance at weddings, occasions, and even funerals. Milk can also be added to the drink, another variant called “Dodh Kahwa” or “Milk Kahwa” but it is usually served to the sick or elderly people.
