Nani's Chai Masala

This is the recipe for the chai masala that makes my chai what it is! It has been passed on to my mother from her mother(my nani) and now to me....


Cinnamon Powder:3/4th Tbsp.
Clove Powder:1/2 cup
Black Peppercorn Powder:1 cup -(minus) 1 Tbsp.
Cardamom Powder:3/5th Cup(60% of a cup)
Ginger Powder(Soonth):2 cups

1 cup is 240ml.
1 Tbsp is 15ml.

I grind the cardamom along with their skin. This adds taste and also saves a lot of effort!

Just mix up all the powders given above well and use it in you tea. Approximately 1/4th tsp. for 2 cups is what I use. You can always experiment and find out what works best for you!
