Hi to all Mylot friend's.Good Morning and Have a Happy Day Yeah...I agree Table salt dissolves quickly than Crystal sea salt.But Crystal Sea Salt or Table Salt create some range of difference in our dishes.Actually my mom will say that crystal salt will add a hint of briny flavor when compared to table salt...We usually add crystal salt while preparing rice meal and fish gravy.Also we treat some pieces of meat and fish with Crystal salt bases to ensure its conservation and proper consumption over time. What about you?

I use iodized salt, refined or coarse whichever is available. I also use Himalayan pink salt which I prefer more.

@manikarnika I use it in anything, just like how I use the other types of salt...I am not very particular in their difference but as I observed I use more pink salt because I think its less salty...I don't know. :-) But one thing for sure, I find the pink salt useful because since I started using it, no more migraine attack for my husband...

@manikarnika Honestly I never asked to any shop, but I have an impression that it won't be available here as I never seen any one buying or using it.

Yeah...of course.But we should use wisely.Because both crystal salt or Table Salt contains 100 percent sodium chloride which is not totally good for health.

We just use the normal table salt. The crystal sea salt seems to use more than the normal table salt because it is bigger. It is better not to eat so salty food. So a little table salt will be good enough for me to cook.

Yeah...You're right.We add required amount of crystal salt while cooking rice in order to equate the taste with gravy which has little table salt...This combination brings more taste to food...

I use crystal sea salt in cooking. This time of year the humidity doesn't seem to affect it as much as it does, table salt.

I no longer add salt at all but when I did, I'd prefer sea salt or rock salt. I found that other salt was too salty! But the sea or rock salt crystals added to the flavour rather than making the whole meal taste of salt.
