masala chai cup
Let me start this new year briskly with a masala tea post Winking smileHave u ever tried a masala tea adding jaggery instead of sugar ? This is the first time i am trying this way. I got this recipe from a website..I simply loved its taste & aroma with all the spices in it. If u want , u can always replace the jaggery with sugar or honey as per ur choice.Some people prefer less milk in tea. Some may like with half & half milk and water. I used more water & less milk.Adjust the quantity of milk & water as per ur liking.Do try this tea , u’ll love it for sure..

  • Water – 1 cup
  • Boiled milk – 1/4 cup  ( adjust)
  • Tea powder – 3/4 – 1 tsp ( i used 3 roses)
  • Fennel seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Cinnamon – 1 inch piece
  • Cloves – 2 nos
  • Cardamom – 2 nos ( open it & add)
  • Ginger – 1/2 tbsp OR 1/2 inch (crush it slightly)
  • Jaggery – 1.5 tbsp ( adjust)
  • Pepper corns -  3 nos (crushed)(optional)
  • Boil water in a pan and when it starts boiling , add all the spices.. Allow it to roll boil.After 3-4 mins, add the jaggery..When the jaggery is completely melted , add tea powder. As soon as u add the tea powder, water will rise. Simmer the flame & Bring it to boil..
