What Is Masala Chai?
In India, masala chai (also known as Spiced Chai) is a kind of tea that is usually made with spices, ginger, and milk. Even while Masala Chai isn’t as well-known in Pakistan as it is in India, as a South Asian raised in the United States, lots of Asians have tasted it. Masala chai, a variation on the original chai, is made even more calming and peaceful by the inclusion of aromatic spices.
Homemade Chai Tea Preparation
A “recipe” is not actually essential; what counts is the process.
You will need about one part milk to two parts water, an abundance of tea leaves or tea bags, a strong infusion, an abundance of sugar, and if desired, delicious spices.
Here is how to prepare Indian chai at home:
In a small saucepan, bring the chai spices along with the milk and water to a simmer on the heat.
Reduce the temperature and add black tea.
Wait until the tea steeps.
Pour the heated spiced mixture through a strainer into a cup; this will retain the entire spices and tea leaves.
Sweeten the chai to your liking with the appropriate amount of sugar.
Adjust the following measurements according to the number of servings required.
Chai Tea Spices
If you like the flavor of a coffee shop chai, you should get tea masala, which is just a ground mixture of sweet spices, at any Indian grocery store.
Included among the most frequent spices (masala) used in Indian tea are:
- Star Anise
How To Make Chai Masala Mix
In a spice mill, combine star anise, cinnamon, laung, and elaichi. Make a powder out of them. Once completed, preserve it in a jar for many months. Add a half spoonful of this masala to your tea and allow it to boil so that the spices’ flavors may combine.
Now all you need to do is match this cup of pleasure with some delectable treats and enjoy it.
How To Make Chai
Each cup of chai contains around 6.25 fluid ounces, enough to fill a teacup. Depending on the size of your mug/cup, you may need to change the quantity of tea you prepare.
Depending on whatever brand of black tea you use, the color of the tea might change.
If you like a more robust cup of chai, add more black tea and/or boil it for a longer amount of time.
Ensure you have an effective spice grinder.
