This masala is named so, because it is hard to imagine making Chaat without Chaat Masala!

With a unique blend of spicy, salty and sour flavours, just a dash of Chaat Masala is enough to add a peppy twist to all kinds of chaats and savoury snacks, ranging from Chaat / Bhel and more to Kebabs / Tikkis / Barbeques , Vadas and even Parathas .

The surprising thing about Chaat Masala is that unlike many other spice powders that have a long list of ingredients, Chaat Masala is made of just a few, everyday ingredients. It is perhaps the combination of these spices with black salt that gives it all the zing.

Here we show you how to make Chaat Masala the right way. Keep some handy in a jar, to sprinkle over curds, fruits, or just about any chaat or snack.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Sapna, We would suggest yo ut o buy a set of measuring cups and spoons because they are handier then weighing each ingredient in gram.

My mom is an avid Tarla Dalal fan and always wanted to learn making Chaat masala at home. I gave her a copy of this recipe and she was too delighted with the results. It turns out like the readymade chaat masala. I would rate 10/10 for this recipe.
