How To Make Chai Masala Powder (Step By Step Instructions With Photos):

making the chai masala:

1. Collect all the required ingredients.

2. To make chai ka masala, heat a broad non-stick pan on a medium flame. When the pan is hot enough add the green cardamom.

3. Now add cloves, fennel seeds, whole black peppercorns, and cinnamon sticks.

4. Dry roast on a medium flame for 1 minute.

5. You will get a beautiful aroma when all the spices are roasted to perfection. Make sure you do not burn the spices. Burnt spices will give an awful flavor to the Chai ka Masala.

6. Transfer the roasted spices immediately to a plate and keep aside to cool completely. You have to be very quick. Keeping the roasted spices on the pan for long will burn them.

7. Then add tulsi seeds and nutmeg in the same pan.

8. Dry roast on low flame for few seconds.

9. Transfer this into a plate.

10. Further add dry ginger flakes. Roast well.

11. And transfer to a plate.

13. Now add 2 tbsp dried rose petals.

14. Grind to make a slightly coarse powder.

15. Do not grind the spices to a fine powder. When ground too fine, the spices tend to seep through in the tea even after straining.

16. Store the masala tea powder in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
