So, what is himalayan black salt?

Himalayan black salt, also known as Kala Namak, is a specialty ingredient that adds a pungent and slightly sulfurous flavor to dishes. It's a type of volcanic rock salt found in the Himalayan region of India and Pakistan, and is harvested using traditional methods. The unique pink-black color comes from iron and other minerals found in the salt. It's often used in Indian cuisine to add depth and complexity to dishes like chaat masala, chutneys, and raita. Himalayan black salt is also popular in vegan cooking, as it can mimic the taste of eggs and is used in tofu scrambles and vegan omelettes.
