Recipe

Kala Namak Dahi

This yogurt-based sauce blankets all chaat recipes, mellowing out the harsh chiles in some of the other sauces. Black salt is available in any Indian grocery store and has a unique flavor—don’t try to substitute kosher or sea salt.

Yield: Makes ½ cup

Ingredients

  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon black salt

Directions

Whisk the yogurt, sugar, and black salt together in a small bowl. Transfer the sweet-tasting sauce (with an aroma similar to that of hard-boiled eggs, thanks to the black salt) to a tightly sealed container and store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Notes

I do not recommend freezing it because once thawed, yogurt has a slight, unappealing grittiness—and the sauce will be too watery.
