Black Salt (Indian Kala Namak)


Other names: Kala namak, Himalayan black salt, Sulemani namak, bit lobon, kala noon, pada loon

Appearance: It ranges from brownish pink to dark violet translucent crystals when whole and has a light pink hue when ground

Typically used: Freshly ground; you can grind fresh using your favorite pepper mill.

Origin: The raw material for producing kala namak was originally obtained from natural halite from mines in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan in certain locations of the Himalayas salt ranges, or from salt harvested from the North Indian salt lakes of Sambhar Salt Lake or Didwana and the Mustang District of Nepal. The raw salts are fired in a furnace for 24 hours while sealed in a ceramic jar with charcoal along with small quantities of harad seeds, amla, bahera, babul bark, or natron. The fired salt is then cooled, stored, and aged prior to sale.

Flavor: Besides sodium chloride, this Kala Namak contains trace amounts of sulfur compounds that gives it a unique umami-like flavor, similar to a boiled egg.

Aroma: Sulfuric

Culinary uses: Sprinkle freshly ground black salt on salads, fruits, curries, chutneys and buttermilk for added flavor.

Being vegans, and tofu lovers, black salt gives a perfect egg flavor. It's amazingly delicious! Got this as a gift to my son in Okinawa.
