Black Salt – Kala namak
Black Salt, or Kala Namak, is a traditional Indian salt. The flavour is tangy with a smoky, sharp edge. It has a striking smoky and sulphurous scent that dissipates upon cooking. The salt crystals range in colour from amber to black or brown.
Black Salt is mined in the Himalayas and used extensively in Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and India. Black salt is ideal for Indian cooking and is a key ingredient in Chat Masala, Tandoori dishes and raitas.
This salt has gained appreciation in Vegan gastronomy as it mimics the flavour of eggs. Pair the salt with ground turmeric and mix through tofu or avocado to make vegan scrambled eggs or an egg salad!
