Kala Namak is a type of salt mined near the Himalayas in the form of dark, hard crystalline 'rocks' that are then kiln-dried to enhance flavor and ground into a lightly pink powder with a pungent, sulfurous smell due to ancient volcanic activity. Used in South Asian cooking and an essential ingredient in Chaat Masala, it can also be used in vegan dishes to add an eggy flavor.
