The best way to prepare tea is to mix equal quantities of milk and water. Lets say, if you are preparing 2 cups of tea, make sure that you take a cup of water and mix it with a cup of milk. Add a small teaspoon of sugar, 1tsp of tea powder. For each cup of tea you make, make sure you add a pod of crushed/powdered cardamom. Let it boil for a while.

Boil the eggs with a little amount of salt in the water. This will prevent the eggs from breaking. In another pan, heat the oil and then add the onions, cardamon and cinnamon and saute them.
