Masala tastes less of cumin, coriander, and ginger, but more of chili pepper, black salt, amchoor and asafoetida. Street vendors usually mix their own chaat masala, which is sprinkled on chopped up fruit or fresh vegetables (such as raw white radish in the Northern regions of the Indian subcontinent) unless the customer asks for it not to be added. Sometimes black salt with chili powder alone is used. References[edit]
