The Perfect Chai Mix

A Chai tea or latte is something we all love to indulge in. Often, they're one of the most expensive items at the local cafe. This recipe will show you how to make your own Chai paste at home - it's incredibly easy to do - and so much cheaper than buying a pre-made mix.

It's versatile, too. Don't just use this mix for lattes or teas; get creative! These spices are great in a number of dishes from Curries, Stews or as a marinade to your favourite meats and vegetables.

Try it with our Chai Chicken recipe, or pair it with our Easy Veg Stock to make an incredible, homemade lunch or dinner.


  • 2 tbsp Turmeric Powder

  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon Powder

  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger

  • 2 tsp Cardamom Powder

  • 1 tsp Clove Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

  • 1/4 cup filtered water


  • Place all the spices in a dry, heavy-bottomed pan. Bring the heat up and gently toast the powders until the spices start to warm and begin to change colour, and the room smells fragrant. Add in water and mix well. Keep in the fridge in a sealed, sterilised jar for up to six months.
