Home Made Chaat Masala

Home Made Chaat Masala

The one flavor that most Indian snacks, street foods, salads and fried foods rely on their instant zing which comes from the chaat masala. Chaat Masala is an Indian spice mix which is zingy, tangy and slightly hot. Home Made Chaat Masala is mostly used as a garnish on salads, Chaats, drinks, curries, daals, Sandwiches and wraps.

There are a few variations to this spice mix. Everyone has their own recipe. Some add coriander seeds, some add fennel seeds. This is my Mother-In-Laws recipe. She doesn’t prefer to add coriander seeds and fennel seeds.
