FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Alco Foods prepares its Chaat Masala with ingredients like dried mango, dried pomegranate seeds, and black salt. It's the fundamental ingredient in Indian street food. Primarily used in Pani Puri, Bhel Puri, Chana Chaat, Fruit Chaat, Papdi Chaat, and other chaat items.
Chaat Masala has a high salt content. The sodium in salt can negatively affect the kidneys and lead to water retention in bodies.
A suitable substitute for chaat masala should add the tang of the spice blend, so use a mix of black salt, cumin powder, common salt, black pepper, and lemon or lime juice. It is the most suitable substitute as it will offer you the balance of sourness, saltiness, tartness, and a hint of spice, with cumin powder as the “grounding” spice.
