Chaat masala is a tangy blend of spices that is used to perk up various street foods or 'chaats'. The masala has a distinguished taste of hing (asafoetida), black salt (sanchal) and dried mango powder that gives it the tanginess. Because of this unique taste it is sprinkled over many fruits to counter the sweetness and add a bit of zing to their taste.

Many will assume that classic recipes in which we use Chaat Masala are limited but that’s not true. For decades now chaat masala is being used in multiple ways all over India. As the name suggests, it is used abundantly in various chaats, ie street foods, like Bhel Puri and Chana Chaat. It gives a sour/tangy taste to the mix of rice puffs and chana which is just right to the palate. This masala mix is not only added to the basic chaats but also to many other types with varying ingredients like Aloo Chaat, Pani puri and even Dahi papdi chaat.

Growing up I never had fancy desserts post dinner but I had an ultimate favorite one that almost every 90's kid had growing up, a Fruit Chaat.  The combination of oranges, apples, bananas and really any fruit we could find sprinkled with loads of chaat masala to cut through the sweetness was my ultimate guilty pleasure. That is when I started to love this masala and wanted to sprinkle it on everything I could lay my hands on.

Once I figured out my love for this ingredient, there was no stopping. But as it turns out, everyone was already doing that! Chaat masala was sprinkled over garam garam bhajiyas and vadas in the rains like the Masala sweet corn vada, or over the crispy Onion rings in restaurants. The basic side dish of sliced onions along with Punjabi food is perked up with lemon and masala as well.
