Masala Mix in America


Lavanya D. Shah






The easiest way to mix Indian style Masala(Blend of dry Spices) is easy. From any drug store buy 99cent jars of cinammon, clove , nutmeg etc. And buy Green " Ilachi" which is fresh cardamom pods from Indian grocery store. Grind the Pods. Now mix all the spices according to your taste. I like more ginger, cardamom, then cinamon and just pinch of nutmeg and clove.

To make tea, boil water adding Tetley tea. One package to one cup of boiling water. Add the blend of dry spices that you just mixed.When the mixture is boiling add milk. One can also mix fresh mint leaves, fresh ginger( Crushed and Added) and if one can find then fresh green tea leaves.Add suger or honey if you like it sweet. Enjoy the most satisfying and cleansing cup of tea that you ever tasted. We at home drink at least 4 cups of the same tea every day! You are all invited to try it.
