I keep this sugar in my pantry to add a punch of flavor over baked goods like sweet-tasting bread or muffins. I have used it over fresh berries and as a chip seasoning. It’s easy to make and keeps well in a glass jar.
Hands-on time: 3 minutes
Yield: 4 ounces
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon powder, adjust the amount according to taste
- Add both ingredients in a bow. Mix well.
- Transfer to a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.
Note: *Dal Chini (Cinnamon) – Sweet, sharp. Whole cinnamon is added as one of the first spices to season cooking oil. Indians use it for savory dishes, like rice and meat. Certain vegetarian dishes also benefit from it. It is also used as a component of Garam Masala and Chai Masala. Western cultures use it for desserts, bread and to flavor drinks such as apple cider. Cinnamon improves the body’s sensitivity to insulin, thus reducing blood sugar. It is an anti-inflammatory and helps reduce joint pain; it’s high in antioxidants (even more so than oregano and garlic); and, it is a natural food preservative. It also helps with weight loss.
