Never Miss to Buy a Special Seasoning Salt From SalzBurg

" ಉಪ್ಪಿಗಿಂತ ರುಚಿಯಿಲ್ಲ; ತಾಯಿಗಿಂತ ಬಂಧು ಇಲ್ಲ." , this is one of the famous proverbs in Kannada. Remembered this proverb looking at many varieties of salt :-).

Visiting Salzburg, city in  Austria is worth once in life time. It is so beautiful and amazing. I really enjoyed watching the nature all 3 days of my stay. Of course every new place I visit I am so curious about the local food and style of preparation. But here in Salzburg I found couple of hours was not sufficient enough for me to explore on different types of salt available in the store, located in front of  Hallein Salt Mine. 

 Please don't miss to visit this place during your Salzburg Trip !!
Checkout the below links to know about  interesting history of this salt mine and the process they follow to extract the salt.

As per Ayurveda, Saindhava Lavana/Rock Salt is good for health than the normal salt You can find rock salt as well as different spicy salts/seasoning salts in the same store.

  Friend of mine had got me one of the salts, "Bad Ischler Gewurz Salt" from the same place(shown below in the pic) before I visited salzburg.I used it while preparing the Brown ChikPeas Cutlets as a substitute for chat masala. I am sure we can use this seasoning salt in place of our Indian chat masala in few other dishes too like patties , samosas and bread rolls.


"Bad Ischler Gewurz salt" contains the following herbs basil, dill, parsley, marjoram, 
rosemary, bay leaves, and thyme.  Onions, celery, mustard flour, fennel, coriander and caraway are also added to the mix. My family enjoyed the freshness and aroma of this seasoning salt. I just spoke about one type of seasoning salt.There are other varieties of seasoning salts too at the store.
