Indian Black Salt is also known as kala namak. It is a special type of Indian mineral salt with a distinctive/sulphurous flavour. Black salt or Kala Namak is not black, but more a reddish-grey, because of the presence of trace minerals and iron. It is not interchangeable with sea salt or table salt because of its distinct flavour.

Description

According to India's classical medical science, Ayurveda, black salt is full of therapeutic benefits. It is rich in iron, and is a cure for flatulence and heartburn.

According to Ayurveda doctors, black salt is the most beneficial form of salt because unlike ordinary salt, they don't increase the sodium content of blood and are therefore recommended for patients with high blood pressure and low-salt eating dieters. It is also a rejuvenator while aiding digestion and improving eyesight. It is said to aid in digestion and soften the bowel.

Uses of Black Salt
Indian Kala Namak is considered a cooling spice in Ayurvedic medicine and is used as a laxative and digestive aid. It is also believed to relieve intestinal gas and heartburn. Kala Namak is appreciated by vegans in dishes that mimic the taste of eggs. It is used, for example, to spice tofu to mimic an egg salad. It is also regularly used in small quantities in chutneys, raitas, pickles and many other savoury Indian snacks, adding a very different flavour than just using regular salt. Try sprinkling it on fresh cut fruit such as apples and bananas for a delicious treat.

Delicious for making an almost identical fried eggs and rice taste, if you can't have eggs or are vegan. Great with chickpeas as well for some reason.

This is a fantastic addition to tofu scramble and provides that extra something to create the feeling of eating scrambled eggs! Use a little at a time and taste as you go along as the flavour is pungent.

If you are vegan and want to create an eggy flavour in your food. This is the salt! It really adds that eggy note to anything you add it to. Try use a little at first. It is strong...
