Let me introduce you to this wondrous Indian spice tousle tabbed Chaat Masala. Chaat masala is an Indian spice tousle which includes Indian sulfur salt (kala namak), cumin, cayenne, and other ingredients. Itâ€™s adds an wondrous sour and spicy flavor!
This is a refreshing summer chaat masala salad inspired by a kachumber salad. I used onion, tomatoes, cucumbers, and radishes as a wiring and add some tofu for protein, lots of cilantro for the herbs, and lettuce for some uneaten crunch and to make it increasingly of a filling meal.
It has a simple dressing of lime juice, loads of woebegone pepper, and chaat masala.
If you’re wondering why I would you would add eggy-smelling kala namak to the mix, well chaat masala has been used in Indian cuisine for various flavors. They are very popular and used in many snacks, street food, or over fruits and any which way in India. It might smell slightly eggy, but the taste is kind of spicy sour patch kind of savor profile.Â And that savor works wonderfully in this chopped salad. You definitely have to try it!Â
