Are pappads, chutneys and pickles banned?
These may be taken in small quantities, unless it is advisable to restrict salt intake drastically. A roasted pappad may be fine. Fresh homemade pickles in vinegar or lemon juice with small quantities of salt are also all right. fresh chutneys of coriander, mint, tomatoes, ginger or garlic, etc. made with a little salt, may be taken to make food more interesting. Occasionally, soy and tomato sauces in small quantities are fine. Ajinomoto (monosodium glutamate) should be avoided due to its high sodium content.
