MASALA TEA/MASALA CHAI RECIPE - MASALA TEA POWDER- INDIAN MASALA TEA WITH CHAI MASALA POWDER RECIPE


MASALA TEA/MASALA CHAI RECIPE - MASALA TEA POWDER- INDIAN MASALA TEA WITH CHAI MASALA POWDER RECIPE

Tea is the favourite of most of the people, that too masala tea is a wonderful soothing drink for cold/cough. With the ordinary tea, few spices are added to make it more flavourful and tastier.

To prepare the masala tea, you can make the spice powder in bulk and can use whenever required or else you can prepare the fresh spice powder and add to the tea.

Generally I use cardamom and fresh ginger only to make tea. But the added spices such as pepper, cinnamon and all will give nice flavour and definitely will give you different experienced tea.

MASALA TEA/MASALA CHAI RECIPE - MASALA TEA POWDER- INDIAN MASALA TEA WITH CHAI MASALA POWDER RECIPE


AUTHOR: KUZHALIS SAMAIYALARAI
RECIPE TYPE: BEVERAGES
CUISINE: NORTH INDIAN
SERVES: 3 PERSONS

INGREDIENTS:
            To prepare the masala powder (around 10 servings):
                        10 to 12 cardamoms
                        5 black pepper corns
                        2 inch piece cinnamon
                        1 ½ table spoon dry ginger powder (Sukku podi)
                        5 or 6 cloves
            To prepare the masala tea
                        1½ cup milk
                        ½ cup water
                        2 teaspoon tea powder
                        1 to 1 ½ teaspoon masala powder
                        1 inch ginger (Grated/Crushed)
                        Sugar as required                                
METHOD:
In a dry grinder add the ingredients one by one and grind it into coarse powder. Now spice masala powder is ready.
Store the powder in air tight bottle and use whenever required.
Now we have to make the tea.
In a sauce pan add water and allow it to boil.
Then add the prepared spice powder, tea powder and grated ginger and allow it to boil for few minutes.
Then add the milk and let it boil in low medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the sugar and mix well. Then remove from heat and filter the tea.
Serve hot.
NOTES:
  • The amount of spice powder is up to your choice.
  • Also I like my tea to be strong and thick (with more milk). You can adjust the water and milk ratio as per your wish.
  • Adjust the tea powder as per your wish, because the flavour and strong may vary for the various tea brands.
  • Instead of dry ginger powder you can use dry ginger also while grinding.
  • This chai masala powder will be good for minimum 1 month.

  1. Thanks for sharing. Adding a pinch of cardamom powder on the hot tea before serving.....is one way I serve. Living abroad I have different sweeteners but the best us Agave nectar from the cactus plant of the deserts here.and it comes in different flavors..I keep on hand for entertaining guests and use them in different granola bars during the year and have new one during the Xmas season.Best wishes and stay blessed!
