  10. Dear Dasanna, xlnt recipe. I did use ordinary salt and it did turn out very very well. Please do let me know what is rock salt, kala namak, sea salt and crystal salt. I seem to have only black salt or kala namak with me.
    Had guests and they enjoyed too. God bless you. DK

    • thanks durga ji. rock salt is sendha namak. kala namak is black salt. kala namak comes from volcanic deposits and it has that that peculiar sulphurish aroma and flavor. rock salt comes from salt deposits which are above or under the ground. sea salt comes from the sea. i am not sure what is crystal salt, as salt in general are crystals 🙂
