Zingy, tangy - this is the perfect seasoning for almost anything! Though often used as a spice in cooking, chaat masala is mostly used as a garnish on salads, chaats (a generic name for savory Indian snacks), drinks like Indian lemonade, meals like curries, dals, dry mixes, fried food, deviled eggs, popcorn... any kind of snack or dish you want salt added to - without the overbearing amount of salt - just flavor and nutrients. The Persians - the Mughals - had a slight inclination to the sweet & sour world and brought this spice to India. Chaaat Masala is one of our most popular spice mixes. There's no way to describe it - try it - it's a whole new spice flavor you already wish you had. We warn you: It's VERY addictive!

Our family has deep roots in India (especially South India) and we enjoy making fresh Indian food at home. A few years ago we began selling our homemade spices to help nonprofits, schools and farmers. It took off from there and now we're in specialty food markets, at food and wine events, at farmers markets, and of course online. Deborah (mom) is the owner of the company and our son, Anil, has been making spices since he was five. Now he's twenty and is our Master Spice Maker who roasts, grinds and oversees production of our seasonings. Rob was born and raised in south India and has an affinity for that type of food and spices. He's our spice teacher. We all share a deep commitment to our planet and it's caretakers-especially farmers. Purchasing our products directly from small farmers in the US helps us support farmers in India and Mexico through our sales. So every time you purchase our products you help support farmers. Thank you!
