Kala Namak

This is the ultimate love-it-or-hate-it thing about Indian street food. It's "black salt" which is really purplish-gray in color.

It is basically salt with trace amounts of iron sulphide which give it the color and the faint smell of hydrogen sulphide. To put it differently, it smells like the gutter, and there's no way to put this politely, ripe farts. It's an acquired taste. To those that acquire it, it's like crack-cocaine. To those that don't, you're missing out. Big-time!

The CC is addicted, needless to say.

This is not going to be the greatest advertisement for this product but those who are addicted probably know what the CC is talking about. You can't live without it!
