Black salt, known as Kala Namak in South Asia, is a distinctively flavored salt with a rich history in the culinary traditions of India, Pakistan, and neighboring countries. Despite its name, it isn't black in color but has a pinkish-gray or purple hue, which can vary slightly depending on its source. What sets black salt apart from common table salt is its unique sulfuric, almost eggy aroma and flavor profile.

This distinctive flavor is attributed to the presence of compounds like hydrogen sulfide and iron sulfide, which develop during the salt's formation process. Black salt is primarily mined in the Himalayan region and other salt-producing areas in South Asia.

Kala Namak plays a crucial role in vegetarian and vegan cuisine, where it is often used to mimic the taste of eggs in dishes like tofu scrambles, vegan omelets, and various chaats. Its pungent aroma and savory taste make it an essential ingredient in chutneys, pickles, and snacks. Additionally, it is used as a finishing touch in some Indian curries and dishes to impart a unique, complex flavor.
