Black Mineral Salt (commonly called kala namak) is a classic ingredient in many South Asian dishes and is used in the practice of Ayurveda.

The salt is mined in the Himalayas and then fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures, hot enough to melt the salt and give it a scorched black color. The heat also changes the chemical composition, bringing out its beloved (and infamous) savory, tart and eggy aroma and flavor.

Use instead of table salt in any dish to add depth and complexity.

  • Origin: Uttar Pradesh, India
  • Aliases: Kala namak, Sulemani namak, sulphur salt
  • Process: Kiln-fired
  • Ingredients: 100% kiln-fired salt
  • Tasting notes: Egg Yolk • Umami • Iron

This salt does not supply iodide, a necessary nutrient.

COOKING

SOURCING

Kala namak literally means "black salt" in Hindi, and it has a long history in Ayurveda. The salt's journey starts when it's mined from the nearby mountains in Uttar Pradesh, a state in northern India that shares a border with Nepal.

From there, the mineral salt is placed into kilns alongside harad seeds, amla and babul bark and heated for 24 hours until the whole mixture melts, producing jagged black salt crystals that are ground into a powder.

Interesting and delicious

I’ve never had a mineral salt before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It's definitely different but delicious.
