Eat it now: Indian black salt

The Guardian

By Nikki Duffy

I'm excited that spice company Seasoned Pioneers has started selling Indian black salt - it's one of those fantastically exotic, unique ingredients without which certain dishes just aren't authentic. It is curious stuff, too: a type of volcanic rock salt, ground finely to a pinkish-grey powder, black salt is tangy and salty with an unmistakeably sulphurous note. It's most unpromising tasted neat, but works wonders if used the right way.
