Set of 3 large salt rocks
Himalayan rock salt originates from northern Pakistan, an area called the “Salt Range”, not far from the Himalayas. It is a natural rock salt that was created when the prehistoric seas evaporated some 250 million years ago.
The actual salt rocks vary in colour from pure white to beautiful light pink and dramatic deep red, all depending on the iron oxide content.
Flavor: highly flavored with long-lasting spicy heat over a mild mineral body.
Ideal for: seasoning meat and fish, as well as vegetables.
Kala Namak truly is a secret ingredient – especially in the vegan cuisine – as it adds an eggy, tangy and slightly smoky taste due to its high sulphur content. The unusual flavor makes it perfect for many vegan dishes like tofu scramble, chickpea omelettes and fruit salads.
Flavor: slightly smokey, tangy
Ideal for: South Asian cuisine, chaats, chutneys and raitas, vegan dishes, savoury deep-fried snacks, movie night popcorn
