I worked as a banker for 17 years. I love staying fit and cooking tasty and healthy meals. I don't use artificial colors and preservatives.
Chaats are mouthwatering snacks that everyone loves. Sweet corn chaat is a simple starter that takes very little time to prepare and is truly refreshing. This yummy, crunchy chaat will make you feel satisfied—and happy to know that every single ingredient is fresh and healthy.

Thanks for visiting. Chaat masala you will get in an Indian store in your area. Once you go there, I suggest, get Indian spice powders like garam masala powder, curry powder, rasam powder, sambar powder, biryani masala etc. You can make all types of Indian dishes using them. They are available in small packets. You can store them for years in a refrigerator.
As chaat masala is the key ingredient for making chaats, I recommend to use it for this recipe. However, if you don't get the masala nearby, you can do this recipe by adding a bit of cumin powder. Omit adding cumin seeds. Still, this dish tastes awesome! but will have a different flavor.

This looks great but I can't get chaat masala, is this a combination of spices I can make at home?
I am assuming this would be served as a side dish, is that right?
