    Chaat masala is a spice powder mix which is commonly found in every Indian kitchen. This masala powder is used to add flavour to just everything prepared in our households, right from dal to sabzi to fruit and vegetable salads.

    Though chaat masala is easily available at home, we often feel our dishes are lacking that restaurant like flavour. Well, that can be because of the spices. You can make your own chaat masala at home and use it in the preparation of your different recipes to enhance flavour.
