“Chaat” refers to snacks and foods like fried potatoes, puris and other favorites that are seasoned with a blend of certain spices. The word means “to lick” or “to taste” in Hindi. “Masala” refers to a blend of spices that are either ground dry or made into a paste. Although chaat masala is typically made with ground spices including amchoor (dried mango powder), cumin, coriander, chili, salt and/or black salt, a mix of whole spices may also be sold for grinding as needed.
The origins of chaat masala are uncertain at best. Some say it’s Delhi; others say it’s Bengal but then again, most believe it’s really Agra, in Uttar Pradesh. Wherever its origin may lie, legend has it that this amazing spice blend actually originated in the kitchen of the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan who at one time became quite sick and was thus instructed to change his diet to lighter, healthier foods, so his cooks came up with chaat masala to help their emperor heal.
At Pure Indian Foods, we’ve formulated our Bombay Chaat Masala using a unique blend of Certified Organic spices in just the right quantity so you get a delightfully aromatic, flavorful and well-balanced blend of the absolute highest quality. It’s a tad salty with a bright, lightly sweet-tart flavor. Sprinkle on a little at a time until you get it just the way you like it. We think you’ll love it - It reminds us of the characteristic flavors of the best and most delicious Indian street food!
