Tea Masala Spice Mix From Gujrat
Chai Masala Gujrati
In India, people add various spices to tea to make it taste better and to give it medicinal properties. This Gujrati recipe has been given to me by my friend Devi-Mamta.
250 gm. dry ginger powder
125 gm. black or white pepper powder (reduce to make it milder)
Seeds of 5-6 green cardamoms
A little freshly grated nutmeg.
Grind all these ingredients together and sieve to remove and husks.
Store in air tight jars.
Add 1 tsp. to the water while boiling or add it to the teapot when brewing tea.
Spiced tea is good for relieving cold symptoms.
