By Bhumika Udernani, Lime and Lettuce

 The #NTChallenge:

A few months ago, we sent out our Plum + Roses Brew to a group of home bakers and cooks, passionate foodies and professional chefs and raised them to the #NTChallenge – create a recipe using the brew – no restrictions!

Bhumika is well known for her innovative salads and healthy creations and I knew she would do something innovative and creative with the brew. And boy, did she deliver!

Here is Bhumika’s recipe for Tea Infused Sticky Chicken:


TIME: 20 mins


  • 250 g boneless chicken
  • 1 tbsp Nature Therapy's Plum & Roses Brew
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • I tbsp honey
  • cornflour (for slurry)
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  • In a saucepan, add Nature Therapy’s Plum + Roses Brew to water, bring it to a boil and let it simmer for 3-4 mins.
  • Once done, strain the tea, add honey to it and mix till well combined.
  • In a wok, add olive oil, sauté the garlic and add the chicken pieces, seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • Once the chicken is almost done, add the tea and honey mixture to the chicken.
  • Simmer for 10 mins, to let the chicken absorb all the flavours.
  • Add a spoonful of cornflour slurry to thicken the sauce.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and serve with rice.
  • The result is sweet sticky chicken with unique floral notes from the tea. A must try!
