Homemade Chai Spice

Homemade Chai Spice is not winter or summer or fall recipe but an everyday ritual in our home. Spices in Chai Spice go beyond the store bought Chai Masala Powder. So, I thought to share with you benefits of Homemade Chai Spice. Also, sharing how to make it your own, and adapt it to your changing season needs..

Every household has their favorite version of Chai Spice. Pretty much a "Chai Spice" for each season. It might sound daunting but the herbs and spices in it make all the difference in when and how is it used. Today, I'm sharing three variations of Chai Spice recipe. Also, including details of flavor and herbal benefits of each one.

So, let's know more about Chai Spice!

Chai Spice isn't only used for making a cup of hot Chai Tea or Chai Tea Latte. It is important ingredient in lot other food preparations. Sweet and savory, such as baked cookies, cakes, curries, even Chai spice flavored Ice Creams! All of these make this spice as popular and versatile as Curry Powder.
