Prepare the night before by making the masala chai. Heat the water, crush the spices and add all the masala chai ingredients except the tea and sweetener.
Keep on a low-boil for 10-15 minutes to release the flavor, it should be fragrant.
Add the tea and sweetener. Continue to simmer for 1 minute.
Turn off the heat and leave to steep for 2 minutes. Strain this chai mixture.
Add the chia seeds to the coconut milk and stir well. Mix in the chai mixture and put in the fridge for 6-8 hours.
In the morning the chia seeds will have absorbed the liquid and the mixture will have thickened into a pudding. Either serve cold as it is or warm by heating on the stove in a small saucepan.
Add pistachios and dark chocolate as toppings and enjoy!
