The Kala Namak, also called Indian black salt, is found in Southern Asia and lends a sulphurous and aromatic flavour to dishes. It contains primarily sodium chloride which gives it its salty taste and iron sulfide for its pinkish-gray colour. Hydrogen sulphide gives it its very particular sulpherous smell and "eggy" aroma and flavour.
The salt has a deceivingly egg-like taste and will lend the typical "egg aroma" to many dishes such as omelettes and quiches but also curries and other Indian dishes...
