I ordered a chai on Lucie and my first walk of the day.
The guy put sugar in the glass, carefully pouring onto it, hot milk. Then hot water in a steel ‘glass’
How’s that my chai?
He promptly threw the milk onto the ground followed by the water and thankfully just about missing Lucie.
I’m guessing it’s a first thing in the morning ritual. I can find out no more, at this stage, given my sophisticated knowledge (don’t ask) of the local Kannada language and the hotel owners grunts.
Another connection with the caribbean. In their case before you take a sip of your rum give a little to the ground.
It’s now back home to finish preparing breakfast for todays lovely guests Eli and James from England
