Homemade Tea Masala

A pinch of spices makes chai a lot more interesting. Here is a simple homemade tea masala recipe with very few ingredients.

Ingredients :
Cloves – 2 tbsp
Green cardamoms- 1/4 cup
Black pepper – 1 & 1/2 tbsp
Cinnamon – 4 medium-size stick
Fennel – 1/8 cup


Tea Masala Ingredients

Method :

  1. Dry roast all ingredients except fennel in a non-stick pan and dry roast on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  2. Now dry roast fennel for 15 seconds separately because it burns faster.
  3. Transfer roasted spices into a plate and keep aside to cool completely.
  4. Then blend all cool spices and make a fine powder.
  5. Store in an air-tight container and use as required.



Tea Masala

Tip :
* This remains fresh for 4 months when stored in an air-tight container and 8 months when stored in a refrigerator.
* You can add dry ginger powder ( 1/4 cup ). I didn’t add ginger powder because I like freshly grated ginger in my tea.
