Chai Ka masala

We are Gujaratis and we are very fond of "Masala Chai".Every Gujarati Household "Masala Chai" is generic.Staying away from Gujarat has given us the exposure into variety of different form of Teas.We have several friends who are non Gujaratis and when they visit us they ask for "Gujarati Chai",initially we used to get confused,but found out that the Masala Chai is being referred as Gujarati Chai.A very simple recipe for making the masala.I have adapted this recipe from Tarla Dalal.If you add this to your cup of tea I am sure you would be refreshed.
