There are some duos that are truly timeless; they’re loved simply due to their amazingness. Idly and sambhar, Batman and Robin, peanut butter and jelly, Tom and Jerry, the sun and the moon, a few duos are incredible in their own way! As great as these duos are, they just do not measure up to masala chai and pakora on a rainy day. Just ask a folk about how great masala chai and pakora is. They will explain that it is one of the most natural and amazing combination in the world, that they have been eating all their lives.
The best part about monsoon in India is how you can enjoy it with a steaming hot cup of tea and a bowl of warm pakoras. While tea is best served hot from the stove, the next best thing is making a pot of tea and storing it in an insulated vacuum flask so you can enjoy the weather outside while sipping your favorite tea!
Masala chai is essentially India’s response to the world’s tea fascination. The love for the milk tea brew made using a wide variety of spices is an emotion collectively shared by people across the country! There is an endless variation of chai available, just about every household has their own chai recipe, including the herbal chai, so you can take your time to find the chai that best suits your pallet. Drinking hot tea along with your family, while also enjoying a batch of warm pakoras from an insulated casserole – this would be the best part of your day during any monsoon season!
Chai and chai wallahs are an integral part of most cities. Not only are the tea shops shelters from the rains but also make warm meeting places for friends, colleagues and acquaintances. And where there is a tea shop, there is most probably a pakora stall somewhere nearby.
The types of pakoras served across the country are just as wide and various as masala chai. Crunchy on the outside and soft in the center, pakoras taste great with both chutney and sauce. The best part is how you can make it with chicken, or a mix of vegetables you love or simply just onion. The deep-fried snack can be made in variations and you can simply not settle for just one!

The versatility of masala chai and pakora is one of the reasons that they complement each other so well.Brew the perfect chai to suit your pallet and make a batch of fragrant and flavorful pakoras, and enjoy sipping on your chai and eating pakoras while it is raining outside. Does anything sound relaxing than this? Make the best use of this monsoon season, invest in a thermos flask and a hot case, the set would definitely help you enjoy a warm beverage and food while you enjoy the chilly weather outside!
