chaat masala recipe | chaat masala powder recipe | homemade chaat masala | with 14 amazing images.

This chaat masala is named so, because it is hard to imagine making chaat without chaat masala powder!

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, homemade chaat masala is made of just a few, everyday ingredients available in every Indian kitchen. It is perhaps the combination of these spices with black salt that gives it all the zing.

This easy chaat masala powder recipe takes 5 minutes to make and is made off cumin seeds, black peppercorns, dried mango powder, sanchal, hing and salt.

A few points and tips to make the perfect chaat masala recipe. 1. Dry roast on a medium flame for 1 minute or until the seeds turn aromatic and slightly brown in colour. Do not burn them or else you will get that bitter flavour. 2. Small jar is more convenient when preparing chaat masala in less quantity. 3. Pick and clean black peppercorns for dirt or debris before adding them. It provides that blackish colour to the chaat masala. 4. Sieve the chaat masala powder using sieve and spoon. Discard the little coarse mixture left behind in the sieve. In case there is a lot of coarse mixture left behind, simply blend it again, sieve and use it.

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.

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.
