i have posted quite a few spice mix masala powder till now, but i was getting several request for this all-purpose chat masala recipe. it was long pending from my side as i wasn’t sure with the right balance of the spices. typically my source for such kind of masala spice mix is the product ingredients section. generally you can easily figure out the quantity of each spice with ingredient list at the back of store-bought spice mix. but for chaat masala or even garam masala, it can be complicated. i had to test and trail with the quantity for this recipe until i got something similar to the store-bought ones. the tricky part was the pudina or mint flavour. it cannot be either too much or less which would derive the taste and flavour to other directions.

furthermore, i would also like to add some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to chat masala recipe. firstly, the spices have to be properly dry roasted without any moisture content in it. this helps to improve the shelf life of the spice mix. yet do not burn it and dry roast it in low to medium flame. secondly, in most of the store-bought chaat masala spice mix, there is a reference for black salt. i have not used it as it is generally not common to have it in our kitchen. if you have access to it, you can reduce the quantity or regular salt by 50% and use it in 1:1 ratio. lastly, for sourness i have used aamchur powder or dry mango powder. as an alternative, you can also use pomegranate powder for the same flavour and taste.

finally, i would like to add my other masala recipes collection with this post of chat masala recipe. it includes my other related recipes like onion powder, maggi masala powder, chai masala powder, garam masala, chana masala powder, rasam powder, dry garlic chutney, chammanthi podi, udupi style sambar powder, biryani masala. further to these i would also like to add my other related recipe categories like,
