Chaat Masala Indian Street Corn Rocks Your July 4th and Beyond - Indian As Apple Pie

Chaat Masala is one of those spices that if you know it, you can't get enough of it. But, what is it? Chaat in Hindi literally means to 'lick'. The thought is that something is so delicious that you want to lick your fingers clean. It's used in most North Indian street foods. Most vendors create their own unique blends, but most blends have a few common ingredients including kala namak (black salt), black pepper, and dried mango powder.

The citrus taste element from dried mango powder gives you a lemony base and profile that pairs perfectly with corn. So, Get your hands on some quality Chaat Masala and rock your picnic table. 

Melt down some ghee, butter, or butter alternative. Add 1 tablespoon of chaat masala and 1 teaspoon of regular salt. Drizzle over your corn or use a pastry brush to get a more even spicy coating. 

Sprinkle your corn with a little more chaat masala, some red chile powder or cayenne (if your guests like a little heat), and even squeeze a little fresh lime or lemon juice over it. 

That's IT! 

At our last party the even the kids couldn't get enough of my corn and chaat masala. It's finger-licking addictive. 

Enjoy! xoxo Anupy

I love chaat masala. I purchased some to try on corn but got the idea to drizzle a little grapeseed oil on some cauliflower florets and sprinkle with chaat masala. Then I sauteed in a little ghee. Yum. No leftovers.
