Masala Chai

Crispy Bhajia


  1. Start by preparing the Masala Chai: In a saucepan, bring water to a boil and add cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and grated ginger. Simmer for a minute.
  2. Add black tea leaves or tea powder, and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add milk and bring the mixture to a boil again. Add sugar or sweetener if desired and strain the chai into a cup.
  4. Now, for the Bhajias: In a mixing bowl, combine gram flour, cumin seeds, red chili powder, asafoetida, and salt. Mix well.
  5. Gradually add water and whisk until you get a smooth and thick batter.
  6. Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Dip the sliced onions, potatoes, green chilies, and spinach (if using) in the batter and deep fry until golden and crispy.
  7. Drain the Bhajias on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  8. Serve the piping hot Masala Chai with crispy Bhajias for a delectable Indian tea-time treat.


  • For Masala Chai, adjust the level of spices and sweetness according to your taste preference. You can use ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves for an authentic flavor.
  • Bhajias can be customized with your favorite vegetables like potatoes, onions, spinach, or cauliflower. Ensure the batter has a smooth consistency to achieve crispy fritters.
  • Serve the Bhajias hot with chutney or ketchup for dipping.
