High Salt Content in Bought Curries

We spotted an interesting article about the amount of salt that is in a readymade curry (bought from a supermarket or a curry house).

The recommended daily salt intake for an adult is between 4-6 grams and a takeaway, along with the extras, can be up to 21 grams of salt.

It seems that people in India regularly take between 9-15 grams of salt in a day, which is way too much.

The conclusion of the article is that the best thing to do would be to make your own curries at home and then you have control over how much salt, or how little, you put into your food.

Obviously we think that this is a great idea and suggest that you start by trying out some of the great curry recipes on the Curry Focus website.
