INGREDIENTS

Preparation

  • 1 Heat medium skillet on medium heat. Add cumin, coriander and fennel seed; toast until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from skillet immediately. Cool completely. Transfer to spice grinder or mortar and pestle, add thyme leaves and grind to a fine powder.
  • 2 Transfer ground spices to small bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until well blended. Use seasoning blend to make Chaat Loaded Fries and Chaat Lemonade. Store any remaining Chaat Masala Seasoning in airtight container. (Makes about 1/2 cup.)
  • 3 Test Kitchen Tip: Amchur or Amchoor is a fruity, tart powder made from green, unripe mangoes that have been harvested, sliced and dried in the sun. Usually a beige to brownish powder, amchur has a sharp, almost citrus-like flavour making it a key ingredient in Chaat Masala. Typical of North Indian cuisine, amchur can be used in marinades for fish or mixed with sea salt as a finishing spice; it adds complexity to curries or other Indian street foods. Amchur can be found at Indian markets, some specialty grocers and through online retailers.
