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.
- Put the cumin seeds in a broad non-stick pan and dry roast on a medium flame for 1 minute. Transfer them on a plate and keep aside to cool for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Combine the roasted cumin seeds and black peppercorns in a small jar of a mixer and blend to a smooth and fine powder.
- Sieve the powder using a sieve and discard the little coarse mixture left behind in the sieve.
- Add the dried mango powder, black salt, salt and asafoetida and mix well using your fingertips for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Store refrigerated or at room temperature in an air-tight container.
