Masala Chai Powder / Chai Ka Masala


In Indian culture 'Masala' means a blend of spices and 'chai' means tea. So, 'Masala Chai' is literally Spiced tea. Our chai is not complete without this wonderful spice powder. This powder can be used in various recipes. I use it in chai, coffee and milk to cure sore throat, cold and fever. If you like masala chai, try this masala you will be sure to stay away from the store bought versions after using this:-)


Ingredients:

1/4 cup cinnamon (dalchini), cut into small pieces
1/8 cup cloves (laung/lavang)
1/4 cup black peppercorns (kalimirch)
1/4 cup cardamom (elaichi)
1/4 cup mace (javantri), break into pieces
1/4 nutmeg (jaiphal)
3/4 cup dried ginger powder (soonth)

Method:

1: Dry roast the cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, cardamom and cardamon for 7-8 minutes on low flame. Cool completely.

2: Add the mace, nutmeg, ginger powder and grind all the ingredients to make a fine powder.

3: Cool completely and store in an air tight container. Enjoy your tea by adding this simple masala chai powder.
