Kala Namak (Himalayan Black Salt)

£ 2.75

Kala Namak, also known as ‘Himalayan black salt‘, is a kiln-fired rock salt with a sulphurous, pungent smell mined in the regions surrounding the Himalayas of Nepal. It is used widely in South Asia & has an unmistakable pungency & taste due to its naturally high sulphur/sulphite mineral content. It also has naturally high concentrations of magnesium & iron.

Kala Namak is especially popular with vegans or those avoiding animal products because its sulphur smell & taste makes a wonderful substitute for egg & makes great scrambled ‘eggs’ using tofu instead. Once cooked, the flavour becomes milder & not so ‘eggy’. 

Traditionally, the salt is transformed from its relatively colourless, raw natural form by firing the harvested raw salt rocks in a kiln for 24 hours, sealed in a ceramic jar with charcoal & small quantities of seeds & bark. The fired-salt melts, the natural chemical reaction occurs & the salt is cooled, stored & aged for the flavours to develop.

Almost black in rock-form, ours is finely ground with no additives for convenience. Once ground, the once-black salt rocks become more of a pinky colour.

With it’s rich, almost-smoky, ‘volcanic’ taste, Kala Namak is especially popular in Indian cuisine, especially North Indian cooking & is widely used in making salt blends like chaat masala, potato chaat or chaat puri.

For a delicious vegan scrambled ‘egg’ dish, use this simple recipe:

  1. use a block of firm tofu, drained & broken into small chunks with your fingers or a fork
  2. heat in a frying pan with a drizzle of Rapeseed oil (or your favourite)
  3. add 1 tsp of Curry Powder, 1/2 tsp Turmeric & a good pinch of Kala Namak
  4. stir well to coat everything in the spices whilst gently heating for 6-7 mins, then serve! Works as a tasty filling for wraps or with avocado

Like so many in our range, this is another that’s sugar-free, gluten-free, paleo & vegan too. With no fillers or anything artificial, our unique blend of herbs & spice create the purest, freshest flavour possible to give your food attitude. 

This makes it ‘free’ on all the slimming plans we know of!

Kala Namak is also considered a ‘cooling spice’ in Ayurveda, used as a laxative & digestive aid.
