Chaat Masala Vinaigrette
Chat Masala Vinaigrette
This is an Indian twist on vinaigrette dressing, one of my favourites and easy to make. Chat Masala can be bought ready made in packets from almost all Indian grocers. It is an extremely popular spice mix used by Indian all over the world. I have more vinegar than oil, unlike a standard vinaigrette where the ratio is approximately 3:1 for oil:vinaigrette. When dieting, you can reduce oil still further.
