The spicing for this salad is solely provided by a unique spice blend called Chaat masala (chaat: to lick). The components of the spice blend include, Dry Ginger, Aamchoor, black pepper, Black Salt, bishopsweed, cumin, amongst others. Indians either hate this blend or are absolutely crazy about it. those who love it sprinkle it on just about anything, from watermelon to cucumber salad while those who hate it... their loss!
Its worth buying a commercially packaged brand such as MDH or Everest. (the getting the proportions right can be tricky when making in small quantities),
The potato salad presented here does not involve mayonnaise. Instead it relies on the Masala coating to pair with the unsalted boiled potatoes and the tart pomegranate berries to provide a unique lip smacking experience. —Panfusine
