Patanjali Chaat Masala – Detailed Review
Price & Packaging
A 100-gram pack of this chaat masala is priced at Rs 45/-. This is packed in a non-resealable pack that is placed inside an orange carton. It has a shelf life of 12 months.
Salt, dried mango powder, black salt, cumin, coriander, caper, acidity regulator (INS 330, INS 296), yellow chilli, carom seed, pomegranate seed, black pepper, clove, ginger, nutmeg, and asafoetida.
How we tried it
In addition to tasting this as is, we sprinkled some of the Patanjali Chaat Masala over cucumber slices, a mix of pomegranate, pineapple, and banana, and another fruit salad that was prepared using the recipe mentioned on the pack.
Appearance & Aroma
The powder had a light beige hue when dry. As it was sprinkled over fruits/veggies, this hue was relatively darker. Primarily, it had a sour-sweet dry mango powder-like aroma.
Taste & Texture
This masala was not smooth or super fine, it felt slightly coarse to touch. Taste-wise, dry mango powder and black salt shine boldly. That said, it did not feel overly salted or tangy, the flavors were rounded. The pungent warm flavor of asafoetida was tasted but it was quite mild yet desirable.
On the cucumber slices and our fruit salad, this masala added a delish tangy flavor.
When we prepared the second fruit salad (recipe on the carton), it was a lip-smacking balance of tang-and-salt. Since the recipe called for additional red chilli powder, the spice was slightly on the higher side. We’d recommend adjusting the red chilli powder as per spice tolerance as this already is a chatpata, sightly spicy masala.
- The ingredient list is quite clean.
- Aroma and texture were commendable.
- We liked the balance of flavors.
- It elevated basic salads.
Patanjali Chaat Masala adds tons of flavors in a pinch. If you’re bored of eating bland/raw salads, this chaat masala could be a saviour.
