Gur Wali Masala Chai Recipe | Indian Masala Chai Recipe | Masala Tea Recipe with Step by Step Pictures.

Hello Buddies. Just moments earlier I posted the recipe of Chai Masala. Here I am sharing with you the step by step procedure of making masala chai using the chai masala. In this masala chai recipe, I have used jaggery or gur instead of sugar. So this tea is quite hot in nature. So make sure you have it in winters only. If you wan to make it in summers, I suggest you use sugar.

Also, go easy on the tea masala. Add with caution. It’s extremely strong and flavourful. Also, I recommend using full fat / whole milk for this masala chai recipe. Using low fat or skimmed milk is like committing blasphemy! ­čśÇ

My tea cup holds 120 ml of liquid. So this recipe yields about 1 serving of 120 ml of tea. For the purpose of measurement of this recipe, 1 cup = 120 ml.


  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Water – 1/2 cup
  • Black tea – 1 and 1/2 tsp or as needed depending on the┬ástrength of the blend (I used Society Tea)
  • Jaggery – 2 tsp or to taste (You can use sugar if you wish)
  • Holy basil leaves – 7 to 8, torn with hand
  • Tea Masala – 3/4 tsp or as needed (Recipe here)
