Reduction of sodium intake/Sodium-potassium balance in body

Though sodium and potassium are trace minerals, their ratio of presence in our body makes a big difference. We imbalance this with consumption of salt(NaCl), baking soda and baking powder.
This is how you can do it:
1.Replace Common salt with organic salt/sendha Namak/Rock salt
2.If you are using egg in cakes, u can use minimum baking powder or entirely do without it too.
3.In some recipes baking soda is used to make retain fresh colour of vegetables. in cooking faster
  3.get a crispy texture in fried items
  4.sponginess in idlies, dosa, dhokla and other fermentation based foods.
    It is easy to do without baking soda in these dishes, as they will not make much difference in taste and worth because they have great health benefits.
