Anyplace around here make that Indian cumin lemonade with "black" mineral salt?
Saw it on the menu board at Amber Cafe in Mountain View the other day. I went with the jeera lassi, however . . .
Your best bet is to buy a ready mixture for Jal Jeera from either the "Everest" or "Shaan" brands, from any Indian/Pakistani grocery store. Also, the salt you mention is 'rock salt'.
Kala Namak is called "black salt" in English. It is mined but has a high and very noticeable mineral content compared with regular rock salt.
Vik's uses it on cashews, the sulfur in the salt gives them a surprising hard-boiled-egg flavor.
Speaking of Vik's, you should be able to get all of the above at Vik's grocery store, right next door to the eatery.
Sure, though for shopping I prefer Milan International at 9th and University. They have a much bigger selection of spices.
