Black salt is a special type if Indian volcanic rock salt
with a distinctive sulfurous mineral taste like hard boiled egg
yolks. This unique, unrefined mineral salt is used extensively in
Indian cuisine as a condiment and added to chaats, chutneys, raitas
and many other savory Indian snacks. Vegans often use black salt in
dishes that mimic the taste of eggs, such as making tofu taste
similar to egg salad.
Black salt is also naturally lower in sodium, with only 60-70%
sodium compared to the 90% or greater content of regular table
salt. It offers an excellent salt substitute for people who need to
restrict sodium intake yet seek the flavor enhancement of salt.

Tastes like eggs

I haven't used this brand yet, but I have made tofu omelettes with black salt and they taste like eggs. My omnivorous partner agrees and likes it.
Really Tastes Like Eggs
From Susie Petersen of Ewa Beach, Hawaii on 2/8/2013.
I haven't bought this yet, but really exited to see it here. I lived in Singapore for 2 years, where a good size box is sold for less than $1, and wish I bought more to stock up, not realizing how expensive it is in the U.S. But fortunately, a little goes a real long way. Best way to use it is after cooking (because the heat during cooking will take away a lot of the taste). My favorite use is adding it to the vegan egg yolk recipe I use, which can be found at http://airyway.blogspot.com/2010/08/vegan-poached-eggs-black-salt.html. Adding this at the end makes the tastes so real. Not sure why this is different looking though...really looks black. The "black" salt sold in Singapore (from India) is actually pink. But when I run out, I will definitely try this one out.
