Chaat Masala

This flavor blend is often used in my kitchen to season dry vegetable, salads, fruits, tofu and more. The list is really endless because this spice blend is one of the “save the dish" blends." It is a combination of the herbs and spices that can jazz up any boring dish.

If you prefer to not use use a homemade Chaat Masala spice blend, you can always pick it from the store ( I like the MDH Brand). I advice you to go visit your local Indian grocery store to pick these spices up.
