Ingredients to make Masala Chai (Indian masala tea)

  • 5 Green Cardamoms
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 Cinnamon stick(or use Cinnamon Powder)
  • 1/2 tsp Peppercorns
  • 1 tsp Ginger Powder(sonth)
  • 1/2 tsp fresh Ginger(grated)
  • 1 tbsp Tea Leaves
  • Sugar to taste
  • Milk as required
  • 2 Cups Water

How to make Masala Chai (Indian masala tea)

  1. Dry roast the spices(Cardamom,cloves,cinnamon and peppercorns) in a pan and then pound to a powder in a coffee grinder.I love to use the mortar and pestle for this.The powder is not very fine but gives superior taste.
  2. Boil water in a saucepan and add the powder prepared above.Boil for approx 5 minutes on low till all the spices give their taste to the water.Now add the ginger powder.Boil for a minute and add tea leaves.Boil for 2-3 minutes and add milk.
  3. Continue to boil on low till the tea leaves have given out their wonderful color and the liquid thickens a little – approx 3 minutes more.
  4. Add the grated ginger and allow to sit for 5 minutes till all the flavors seep into the tea.
  5. Strain into tea cups and add milk and sugar to taste.Enjoy with tea biscuits or with anything of your choice.
My Tip: NOTE – The sugar may be added while boiling the water with the spice powder.
