Chai Masala powder along with chai and whole spices
I love to start my morning with a cup of Coffee but since 5-6 months I started having tea. (Not in the morning) But in my life I never had tea, but started to have it since 5-6 months. It is a tradition, a culture to have tea first thing in the morning in most parts of India. I started with saffron tea, later slowly slowly its like in this lock down days, I am trying to make tea almost everyday. I tried to make chai masala. Here, on the occasion of new foodiemonday bloghop event we came with #Masalarecipes. I chose to make Chai masala and the recipe is really easy.
Many types of tea people do try to make, like Ginger tea, cardamom tea, Masala tea, saffron tea. here in doha it called Karak tea with all these flavors.
My favorite is Cardamom ginger tea. To enjoy a perfect Chai, you definitely need a good Chai Masala Powder. So, here I share the detailed recipe to make the best homemade tea masala.
My mom used to make Chai Masala and store it in an air tight container and add a little to in tea. Having freshly made chai masala definitely enhances the flavor. It is very easy to make and hardly takes any time.
By adding ginger and this masala makes any tea perfect!! Try this recipe, you will not buy the tea masala from outside, and would love to store it for the enjoyment of tea. check out the recipe below and enjoy the hot sip.
