Most chaats owe their snazzy, tongue-tickling flavour to this peppy masala. Made of everyday spices, combined smartly with pungent ingredients like black salt and amchur powder, the Chaat Masala has a strong aroma, which draws one to any dish it is added to. And, it surely lives up to the expectations by imparting a very enjoyable flavour too. Here, we show you the perfect way to make it, so that you get a uniformly-blended masala, which can be stored for a long time.

You specify good proportions of each spice, but no dried ginger powder or coriander/cilantro seed? I feel that these, especially the ginger, make chaat masala far zingier and more complex.

Nice recipe and explained too well in the video. Use this to sprinkle on fruits or use to make chaats, it is sure to perk up the flavour of the dish.
