Crafting the Perfect Cup: How to Make Masala Chai


Crafting the Perfect Cup: How to Make Masala Chai

Making Masala Chai at home is an art, an age-old tradition passed down from one generation to the next. To embark on this aromatic journey, gather the finest ingredients: black tea leaves, whole spices like cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, and of course, milk and sweetener.

Step 1: Infusing the Spices

In a pot, combine water, crushed ginger, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. Allow the spices to dance in the simmering water, releasing their essential oils and creating the soul-stirring base of your masala chai.

Step 2: Brewing the Tea Leaves

Add robust black tea leaves to the spice-infused water. Let the tea leaves steep until the rich aroma envelops your kitchen, signaling that it's time to add the essential element – milk. The combination of milk and tea creates the velvety texture that defines a truly authentic Indian Masala Chai.

Step 3: Sweetening the Pot

Add sweetener to taste, whether it's the traditional jaggery or the more commonly used sugar. The sweetness complements the boldness of the spices, creating a harmonious balance that makes each sip a delight.

The Best Masala Chai Recipe: A Symphony of Flavors
