Substitutes to salt would be – Unlike sugar we can’t substitute salt, but it is interesting to note that sea vegetables, if you can get your hands on them, like dulse or kelp flakes make great substitutes as they are rich in iodine and other minerals. Unfortunately, it is a rare site to find dulse or kelp flakes in Indian stores.

Instead of cutting down salt, a good strategy is to dilute it. Therefore, mix salt with flavour-inducing ingredients like coriander, chillies, mint, lemon juice etc, to get a salt mix that encourages low salt usage while helping you whip up delicious dishes.
