Kala Namak Powder (Black Salt - Sanchal)
Black salt powder, also known as Kala Namak powder (Sanchal), is a type of rock salt that is commonly used in South Asian and Indian cuisine. It is a type of unrefined salt that is mined from the Himalayan salt range and has a distinct sulfurous and pungent aroma, which is why it is sometimes referred to as "sulfur salt."
Black salt powder is a popular ingredient in many dishes, particularly in vegan and vegetarian cooking, as it is said to mimic the flavour of eggs due to its sulfur content. It is often used in chaats, chutneys, raitas, and other savoury dishes in Indian cuisine.
