Kala Namak, or Indian Black Salt (also called Nirav Black Salt or Sanchal), is a special unrefined mineral salt from Darjeeling, India. It is a volcanic rock salt mined in central India. The ground salt is not black, but more of a coral pink or pinkish gray, and has a strong, sulfuric flavor. These colors come from the presence of trace minerals such as magnesium, as well as volcanic iron.
Kala Namak is used in Indian cuisine as a condiment, most commonly with snack foods. It is used in chaats (fruit glazes), chutneys, raitas (yogurt and cucumbers mixes), fruit salads, and savory deep-fried snacks. The finishing salt has a strong sulfur taste and smell. While this unique quality is often diffused when cooked, it nonetheless adds a special taste of eggs.
Ingredients: sea salt
Kala Namak. So glad that I can still get it. Thanks to The Meadow for the great online service.
Many thanks for your rapid shipment of my favorite salt. I am a happy customer at your brick & mortar shop in Greenwich Village, & I so appreciate you coming through for me in this fashion. Highest recommendation!
I am thrilled with my purchase. I’ve spent years searching for this salt.I had received this salt in a gift basket one year, forgot the name of it after throwing out the packaging and have been on a mission to find it.
