Cinnamon (Dalchini)

Cinnamon is a spice that can be bought as whole dry sticks. It comes from the inner layers of the bark of a cinnamon tree. The warm and sweet flavour of cinnamon can be used whole in savoury rice and meat dishes and the only time it is used in powder form will be when ground as part of a garam masala mixture.

Cinnamon is one of the spices used when making spiced tea (Masala Chai).
