A flavourful and aromatic spice blend to make Indian style chai
In North India masala chai is a mandate for the mornings, no morning is complete without a sip of steaming hot masala chai . The tickle of ginger in your throat or the aroma of the spices in the tea wakes us up first before the caffine really touches the body . We cant feel the same love for coffee in North India . For making masala chai either fresh ginger and cardamom is added in the tea or a special blend of spices are blended together and is used to make the masala for the chai .
Each and every family have their own special masala blend ,some prefer to add more black pepper some like to make it milder and add more of cardamom so the ratio vary according to individual choice and taste but the main ingredients are cardmaom ,cloves ,pepper corns,cinnamon,dried ginger powder.
