Masala Chai / Spiced Tea…

Nowadays, in Namma Bengaluru, the weather is getting colder and is causing cold and allergies. So I thought of sharing a recipe for a healthy masala tea to replace the regular tea. I made this masala tea which is a very good antioxidant and will help to build and strengthen the immune system.


Masala tea is in fact, an anytime beverage. A cup of this masala tea gives a wonderful sense of warmth and has a soothing effect. Ginger makes us so refreshing and it is so good for digestion.


You can actually skip the milk and prepare this as a plain masala tea which tastes even better !!

Ingredients:
  1. Milk- ¾ Cup
  2. water- ¼ Cup
  3. Sugar- adjust to taste
  4. Ginger- a small piece
  5. Tea Powder- 2 tbsp
  6. Cloves- 3- 4 nos
  7. Cinnamon- 1 inch stick
  8. Green Cardamom- 3
  9. Grated Nutmeg- a pinch
Method:
  1. Combine the milk, required amount of sugar and water along with tea powder and bring this to boil keep this in a low flame.
  2. Crush all the spices in a mortar and pestle and add this to the above mixture and let this boil for a couple of minutes.
  3. Strain and serve this piping hot.
