the 5 Cs  🥥✨

do you like the way I added some voice overs in with the original audio? 😆 I’m still learning and having a blast doing it!

this warming mid-week chai spiced curry 🌶🔥 is exactly what you need especially with colder weather creeping up on us. BRRRRR! ☃️

the beauty of about chai addict is that it’s unsweetened allowing our recipe creator @roses.and.ros to use it in a savoury dish ❤️. in this recipe the chai concentrate helps reduce the amount of ingredients and simultaneously enhances flavour. it’s a win-win! 🔥

– 1/2 brown onion finely diced
– 1 chilli finely diced (adjust according to taste)
