    Reading

    Context: Jen wakes up early in the morning and saw her host mother making chai “tea” for the family and wants to learn how to make Indian chai.

    जेन: शुभ प्रात:, माता जी, आप क्या बना रही हैं ? Good morning, mother, what are you making?
    कमला: Good morning जेन, आज तुम जल्दी जाग गयी | मैं परिवार के लिए चाय बना रही हूँ | Good morning Jen, You are awake so early today. I am making chai for the family.
    जेन: यह तो बहुत अच्छी बात है | मैं चाय बनाना सीखना चाहती हूँ | This is great. I want to learn how to make chai.
    कमला: चाय बनाना बहुत आसान है | सबसे पहले, एक पैन में पानी, दूध, चाय पत्ती, और चाय का मसाला डाल के उबालिए | To make chai is very easy. First of all, please take water, milk, tea leaves, and tea spice in a aucepan and boil them.
      (थोड़ी देर बाद) After a while
    जेन: कमला जी, यह अब उबल रहा है | Kamala ji, this is boiling now.
    कमला: अब आंच कम कीजिये और इसे थोड़ा ठंडा होने दीजिये | Now please lower the heat and let it cool down a little bit.
      (थोड़ी देर बाद) After a while.
    जेन: कमला जी, यह अब थोड़ा ठंडा हो गया है | Kamala ji, it gets cooler a little.
    कमला: ठीक है, अब चाय छन्नी से मसाले और चाय पत्ती को छान लीजिये | Okay, now please strain the tea leaves and tea spices using a strainer.
    जेन: हो गया | done.
    कमला: अब इसमे अपने स्वाद के अनुसार चीनी मिलाइए | आपकी चाय तैयार Now add sugar in this according to your taste. Your tea is ready.
    जेन: यह मेरी ज़िन्दगी का सबसे पहला चाय है जो मैंने ख़ुद बनाया है | This is the first tea that I have made my own in my life.
    कमला: वाह ! अगर आप चाहें तो परिवार के लिए हर रोज़ चाय बना सकती हैं | Wao! If you want you can make tea for the family every day.
    जेन: अगर मैं हर दिन इस समय जाग पायी तो ! If I get up this time everyday.
      दोनों हँसती हैं और चाय का मजा लेती हैं | Both laugh and enjoy their tea.
