Homemade Chaat Masala Powder

a chatpata homemade Indian masala powder using some whole and powdered spices 

Indian cuisine is filled with a wide varieties of masalas or spice powders. Masalas can completely change the look and taste of the food we do prepare. Although the ready-made spice powders are now easily available in the markets, however those can not beat the homemade ones. Specifically the flavor they impart when they are freshly blended, is just awesome ! I have already shared few homemade masalas like :

Today’s recipe is another homemade masala as Chaat Masala (Vegan & Gluten free). This is quite easy and simple one. The chaat masala has a mix flavors of tangy, salty as well as spicy. Starting from chaat, fruit salad, lassi, juices, panipuri to lots more snacks, street food items this masala adds a lovely taste to our palate. 

A mix of whole spices like cumin seeds and coriander seeds are dry-roasted first, cooled down and then ground into a fine powder along with black salt, pepper powder, salt and dry mango powder. And these ingredients we generally have in our pantry, so just dry roast some specific spices, cool and then grind into a fine powder. Voila !! it is that much simple. This masala can be prepared beforehand which takes few minutes hardly and then kept in an air-tight container to use quite long time later 😊 Do try this home-made Chaat masala instead of buying from outside !
