Description
 

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.

You learn something new every day June 26, 2019
Reviewer: J from NE PA, USA  
I had no idea that a salt (and a few other ingredients) could make Mung Daal (yellow) taste like eggs.  Am allergic to eggs and the sulfur tang of this salt is key to making very tasty Vegan Scrambled "Eggs" - thank you so much.  I feel Pure Indian Foods products are very high quality and so appreciate the ease of navigating through your website.

Reviewer: teresa ellington from mandeville, LA United States  
I never have used the salt before but heard good things. When I finally tried it with my tofu scramble I was amazed at how good it tasted !! Not really sure on the oil though. But appreciate the free gift .
