Indian cuisine seems incomplete without a dash of masalas or handcrafted spices as we all say these days. Be it for sabzis, beverages, cold drinks or rice, masalas add that much needed spice in our lives, ain’t I right, ladies? Though it is a convenient option to buy your favourite masalas from supermarkets, somehow, I cannot trust the quality and the authenticity of ready-made masalas. Hence, I always make sure to prepare the masalas at home. For instance, since the day I have prepared Achari Masala, Thandai Masala Powder, Bisi Bele Bhat Masala Powder, I have completely given up on buying them ready-made because the taste that these homemade masalas grant is totally different and much more satiating the former ones. Inspired by my previous attempts, last weekend, I tried my hands on Homemade Chaat Masala.
Chaat Masala can practically be used with any dish that you feel like perking up. Right from fruit salad, masala toast sandwich, chaat, I tend to sprinkle this magical masala on most of the snacks that I prepare! Homemade Chaat Masala is thereby, one of the quintessential ingredients that you could make for yourself within minutes and it could be stored for quite some time as well. Fused with the flavours of cumin, whole coriander, black peppercorn, hing, dry mango powder, and black salt, Homemade Chaat Masala just jazzes up the palate like no one else.
If you are Indian Masala Fan just like me then you can so not miss making this Homemade Chaat Masala, I am telling you! So, here’s it super easy recipe to follow:
