I have chaat masala....but what can I use it for?

We are vegetarians on Fridays but I would like to use it for non-veg dishes as well.

Ta muchly.

K xx

you cannot kaarthi...Chaat masala consists of dried mango powder, cumin, black salt, coriander, dried ginger, salt, black pepper,asafoetida and red pepper. Chaat masala has a pungent smell and tastes sweet, sour and pungent.

chat masala is not used in cooking.  you simply sprinkle it over fruits, etc for that tangy taste.  it is excellent when sprinked over bhajiyas, pakodas, raitas etc.... and of course chats...bhel puri, paani puri etc...

here is a simple recipe for you to make this at home...


•    2 tbs. cumin seeds

•    2 tbs. whole, dry red chillies

•    2 tbs. coriander seeds

•    1 tbs. black pepper, whole or ground. Whole gives better flavour.

•    2 tbs. black salt or kala-namak. If you can't get it, use rock salt or ordinary salt

•    1 tbs. ordinary table salt

•    1/2 tsp. citric acid powder

•    1 tbs. dry mango powder or amchoor/anardana or pomegranet powder

•    1 tbs. ginger powder

•    1 tbs. Garam Masala

•    1/2 tsp. asafoetida powder, dry roasted on a gridle for a few minutes


1.  Dry roast cumin seeds on a girdle or tawa until browned and an aroma rises. You will know when you smell it! Keep aside

2.  Lightly roast coriander seeds and keep aside.

3.  Lightly roast red chillies and keep aside.

4.  Place all ingredients in a grinder and grind to a powder.

5.  Keep in an airtight jar.

i hope this helps.

A friend of mine taught me this fairly simple typical Kashmiri speciality that enhances the taste of bottle gourd (lauki) when fried and combined with yoghurt.

Bottle Gourd Yakhni

500 grams bottle gourd peeled, cut into roundels and washed
2 teaspoon(s) cumin seeds
4 cloves
teaspoon(s) each of asafoetida and dry ginger powder
2 whole red chilli(es)
1 teaspoon(s) aniseed powder (saunf powder)

1 teaspoon garam masala powder
2 cups yoghurt beaten
2 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
salt to taste
oil for deep frying

1.     Pat dry the bottle gourd roundels. Heat the oil for deep frying in a pan and fry the bottle gourd roundels till they are slightly browned. Drain and keep aside. Heat oil in another pan till very hot. Add the cloves, asafoetida and cumin seeds. Fry on medium heat for 2 minutes or till the cumin seeds are a shade darker.

2.     Add the deep fried bottle gourd roundels, aniseed powder, dry ginger powder, whole red chillies, salt and water. Let it come to a boil on high flame. Reduce the flame and keep on medium / low heat for 5 minutes or till the bottle gourd roundels are tender and much of the water has evaporated.

3.     Now, mix in the beaten yoghurt and stir slowly till it has fully blended with the curry. Let it boil on low heat for about 5 minutes. Mix in the garam masala powder and put off the flame.
