Himalayan salt comes from a "highland" area of the Himalayas in India. It is a white and colorless salt, which is very popular among cooks. There are two ways to use Himalayan salt. It can be mixed with other ingredients or used as a self-contained salt mix.
We all know what a typical kitchen salt will do. The typical salt contains sodium chloride, calcium chloride, and potassium chloride. Salt is also known as chloride, if it has one or more of the elements of chlorine, bromine, or iodine. The salt also comes in a variety of natural flavors.
Before adding the salt, you should let the mixture sit in a large pot on the stove. This will give the mixture time to dissolve and prepare the seasoning.
To use the Himalayan salt, the first thing you should do is soak the herbs in the salt. You will be working with the salt in a few minutes. After the salt is fully dissolved, it should be allowed to cool to room temperature. Then you can add the herbs to the salt and toss gently to coat them.
Once the salt is ready, you will need to mix it in with any other cooking ingredients. Whisking the salt mixture will ensure a uniform mixture. However, if you prefer a more delicate flavor, you can add another few drops of the herb into the salt.
The most important thing to remember is that the Pink Himalayan salt is meant to be stirred rather than pouring. When added to a pan of boiling water, the salts will add body to the mixture. When you cook, the water will initially come to a boil and will then continue to cook, preventing the salt from dissolving completely.
Finally, when you are ready to serve, add a generous amount of the salt to your recipe. In some dishes, such as chutneys, some herb spices are added directly to the dish as well. This will give the taste a different experience and can enhance the dishes flavors.
One type of Indian dish, which will have a delicious effect with the Himalayan salt is a Coconut Chutney. Simply put the salt into a saucepan and stir it in until it turns a deep golden brown.
Then pour the coconut chutney into a jar and store it in the refrigerator for use throughout the winter. Other Indian dishes which use this salt include Curry Paneer, Chappati, Edamam, and Aloo Gobi. Although the word chutney is derived from the Arabic word for "chutney," using the salt as a substitute for vinegar in cooking can be considered an anachronism. Chutneys are based on fruit juices and other ingredients such as vinegar, and the salt will not have the same effect.
The number of spices used can have a drastic effect on the flavor of the final dish. When choosing herbs, remember that herbs will not impart a flavor to the salt that is similar to their taste.
If you want to keep it simple, try just adding a few drops of the herb. The final result will depend on how much you add, but if you plan to make a large batch of the salt, then you may have to change the quantity of herbs that you use.
