Tamil Nadu indigo cakes with a light dusting of white ash on some surfaces. The ash is sprinkled over the cake during the production to avoid the stickiness during drying. This white color will be formed as a layer on the cake after complete drying. The ash is usually rubbed off before dispatch, but these blocks still have a thin layer on some surfaces.
