Chaat masala is an essential and indispensable ingredient that is added to all the chaat recipes. Apart from chaat masala, another ingredient that is added is black salt.

Chaat recipes are an integral part of Indian cuisine and each state & city in India, has their own favorite chaat or their own way of making a chaat snack. E.g. Pani puri made in Mumbai is different than the golgappa served in Delhi and the puchka served in Kolkata. Usually chaat snacks are served in stalls or carts. But they can be easily made at home.

Being from Mumbai, chaat has always been my favorite and I know also how the chaat recipes are made. Thus my family gets to enjoy a variety of chaat recipes that I make at times. I have covered most of the chaat recipes from Mumbai & Delhi and will try to cover other cities too. As and when I prepare a chaat recipe, I will update this post too.
