Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon asafoetida powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black salt kala namak
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon dry ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry mango powder amchoor
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • ½ teaspoon rock salt
  • ½ teaspoon kachri powder optional
  • ¼ teaspoon dried mint leaves optional
  • 2 teaspoons pomegranate seeds optional

Instructions

Step 1: Roasting the Spices

  • Heat a pan or skillet over medium heat.
  • Add coriander seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder, black pepper, black salt, caraway seeds, chili powder, and cloves to the pan.
  • Dry roast the spices for a few minutes until they become fragrant. Stir them occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Remove the pan from heat and let the spices cool down.

Step 2: Grinding the Spices

  • Once the roasted spices have cooled, transfer them to a spice grinder or mortar and pestle.
  • Add dry ginger powder, dry mango powder, nutmeg powder, rock salt, kachri powder (if using), dried mint leaves (if using), and pomegranate seeds (if using) to the grinder.
  • Grind all the ingredients together until you achieve a fine powder. Make sure to grind the spices thoroughly to ensure a well-blended chaat masala.

Notes

  • Transfer the freshly ground chaat masala to an airtight container.
  • Store it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight. Properly stored, it can last for several months.
  • Use your homemade chaat masala to enhance the flavors of snacks, street foods, salads, fruits, and refreshing beverages like lemonade, soda, or buttermilk.
