Why I Love This Recipe

Chai or tea consumption is common in most parts of India. Tea selling vendors are visible on roads in most parts of India and they are known as "Chai Wallas". People start their day with a cup of tea in the morning and also consume tea in the afternoon.


Ingredients You'll Need

This recipe will make 2 cups of tea.

Ingredients for Masala tea:

2 Cardamoms
Small piece of grated ginger
3 Mint leaves
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 cup milk
1 cup water
4 teaspoon tea leaves (black tea leaves)
4 teaspoon of sugar (you can add more if you like it to be more sweet)
1/2 teaspoon Indian chai masala (Special spice mix for the tea. You can get it in any Indian grocery store or you can make it at home). This spice mix can be prepared at home too and you can also make tea without this spice mix.

Method for making Indian spice mix for tea:
Mix and grind dry ginger powder, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. Tea masala or spice mix for tea will be ready. :)

After the tea mixture becomes brown in color, strain the tea in the cup with a strainer.


Enjoy the hot Chai Masala tea. :)
