RECIPE OF CHAI MASALA POWDER
1) To make chai masala powder, first cut dry ginger into small pieces.
2) Now heat a pan, roast dry ginger pieces in this pan on medium heat, as soon as the moisture of dry ginger ends, keep dry ginger in a plate to cool down.
3) Then in the same pan add cloves, black pepper and cardamom.
4) After that add cinnamon and fennel.
5) At the end, put basil leaves and roast all these whole spices for a minute, as soon as the smell of spices starts coming, turn off the gas.
6) Immediately spread these roasted spices in a plate. Let the spices cool down completely.
7) Now in a mixer jar, first grind dry ginger finely. Put this dry ginger powder in a bowl.
8) Then add the roasted spices in the same mixer jar and grind them finely.
9) Lastly, add the roasted spice powder as well as dry ginger powder and nutmeg powder and run the mixer once again, as all the spices are mixed. You can also put some saffron strands in this step.
10) Chai masala powder is ready. Keep this powder in an air tight container.
Homemade Chai masala powder can be stored in the fridge for 4 to 5 months by storing it in an airtight container. But I suggest you to grind as much as 2 to 3 months. So that the freshness of the spices remains intact. If possible, keep the container of this powder in a cool and dark place. Keep it outside the fridge. Keeping it in the fridge destroys the real flavor of the spice.
