    Wow, very unique. I'll have to try this myself. Thanks for the instructable.


    One edit I would suggest is to specify that the salt should be a pure salt, with no iodine or anti-caking agents added. I don't know if those additives are common in India, but most salt in the USA has additives. Pure salt is sold as "pickling salt" and Kosher salt here.

    I'm making this today and voted for you - good luck in the contest!

    yeas you are very much right. In india we get both salts. I wasn't aware of the situation there so i just wrote salt.
    thank u for your vote

    you can use it as seasoning. don't add too much.
    i eat it with chapati (Indian bread) it tastes good with rice n curry.
    if you find better use do let me know.

    I wondered the same thing. They seem to be used as a seasoning and to add tartness to sauces and condiments. Here are some links I found:
