About Kala Namak Fine Salt

Kala Namak, or Indian Black Salt (also called Nirav Black Salt or Sanchal), is a special type of mineral salt from 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 grey, and has a very distinctive sulfurous mineral taste (like hard boiled egg). These colours 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 the taste of eggs.
