How to reduce excess salt in food?
I was preparing dal today and my cell rang. While talking over the phone, I didn’t realize how much salt I added to it. When I tasted it (thankfully before serving) I got to know how salty it was.
My immediate thought was, OMG! Now what should I do?
I am sure this must have happened to you some time. So here are some tips of how you can reduce the salty taste in your food.
1. Cut raw potatoes and add them to the food like curries, vegetables, dals or any gravy.
2. For recipes like rice, noodles, spaghetti…add some sugar.
3. If the food to too salty then consider adding one of the main ingredients to it like, some more vegetable, or tomatoes, or boil dal and add it.
Our author Uma and viewer Prachi suggest –
For gravies, add a few balls of chapati dough (kneaded) to reduce the excess salt, but remember to scoop them out before serving.
Hope this helps.
