Pahadi Mix Salt (Pisyu Loon): What Makes It Unique?

Pahadi Mix Salt (Pisyu Loon): What Makes It Unique?

Pahari Mix Salt will be unique to those individuals who have only ever consumed "white salt" as their salt option. In the villages of India, you will still get to taste black salt and rock salt. But these are also difficult to get in metro cities.

While many are losing their taste for natural salt, some women from Uttarakhand are sharing the 'Pisyu Loon' of the mountains with people all over the country. This is an effort to preserve their culture and pass it on to the coming generations and make themselves self-reliant.

Today this salt is famous not only in Uttarakhand but also across the country.

Women from Uttarakhand, along with Nirvana Organic, make special mountain salts called 'Pisyu Loon,' which have been made in the mountains for a long time. We are making this special Pahadi Mix salt available to you in different cities across the country using online marketing and e-commerce websites.

Crafted purely by hand using traditional Silbatta (a special grinding stone set made of high-quality stones), our products are ground to perfection to bring out their authentic taste. The Silbatta, is an ancient and traditional kitchen tool, ensuring its durability and reliability.

This Nirvana Organics product features the purest Himalayan Rock Salt, containing a rich array of natural minerals and elements similar to those found in the human body. Himalayan pink salt detoxifies the body, supports weight loss, balances pH levels, enhances digestion, boosts metabolism, and regulates blood pressure.

Its recipe is traditional, in which 10 different types of ingredients are added and this salt is ground on a sillbatta.

The specialty of Pisyun Loon is that it is not only tasty but also good for health. It uses mountain herbs and traditional spices along with pink salt. You can eat it with salad, fruits, vegetables, and even directly with roti.

It is said that pahadi people who sometimes do not have sabji to eat with roti, use this salt, which tastes more delicious than any regular curry or sabji.

How Do we Make It?

To make Pahadi Namak, we mix red or green chilies with garlic, mustard, coriander, ginger, cumin, and other spices. Then, we crush them together using a Sil Batta. Next, we add Himalayan pink salt and spread the mixture in the sun. We continue adding salt until the mixture dries completely, which can take 4-5 days or more depending on the weather. Once dry, the traditional Pahadi mix namak is ready to use.

Creating Employment Opportunities For Women

Women here are coming together in groups, taking charge, and creating a whole new source of income.

These groups are preparing this special product and packaging it up sustainably.

This unique mountain salt is flying off the shelves, and the women and young people who make it are earning a good living. It's a great way to empower local communities and put Uttarakhand on the map for something special.

Women are coming from every village to join us and are preparing salt in groups, due to which they are getting and also providing employment. Today, if any tourist or foreigner comes to Uttarakhand, he/she is going with the mix salt from here.

Nirvana Organic pahadi mix salt is not only full of taste and medicinal properties but this salt is being made without harming the environment.
