  • Mix all the ingredients (except Nutmeg) in a blender and blend to make a coarse powder. Grate the nutmeg in the powder.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
  • Use 1/4 tsp of this powder for each cup of Indian masala chai.


Freshness & Flavor: it is best to not make too much chai masala at once. Having freshly made chai masala definitely enhances the flavor.
