Origin of Kala Namak Salt Flakes
Kala Namak, also known as black salt, is a salt granulate originating from Pakistan. This salt is naturally pure and unrefined volcanic mineral salt and is processed according to centuries-old traditions. The salt is characterised by a high water sulphide and iron content.
Traditionally, this salt was extracted from mines in Pakistan. The raw material has to be heated for 24 hours in a cooker while it was in a closed ceramic container together with charcoal. During these 24 hours, the sodium sulphate is converted into hydrogen sulphide and sodium sulphide, which gives Kala Namak its dark colour. After heating, it was cooled, stored and aged.
Taste and use
Kala Namak gives food a sulphurous flavour similar to that of boiled eggs. In Indian cuisine, this is highly desirable and Kala Namak is used as a flavouring for fruit salads, chutneys or in the popular Raitas. The salt is especially recommended with vegetables and exotic fruits, but also with fish. Kala Namak also gives fruit juice drinks an extraordinary taste. Vegans appreciate this black salt for its egg-like taste and can be used for scrambled tofu and a vegan omelette.
