New Low Potassium Dishes Section

This section is to help with desi, mostly south-indian food items for people with diet restrictions. These recipes are majorly a contribution from “J” aunt – almost all recipes in this section would be from her mind and kitchen …. As she says, these recipes would be low on potassium or other such diet-restricted items for health conditions, but surely would be high on taste! 🙂

Presenting some interesting recipes for those of you (or who cook for family/friends) who have restrictions on taking some foods. It may benefit people who have kidney conditions, high cholesterol, diabetes, or other such conditions.

Our current focus for this section on diet restrictions is on diets requiring Low Potassium. Potassium is a mineral needed by the body for proper functioning of nerves, muscles, including the heart muscle. A healthy level of potassium helps control the blood pressure and promotes overall health. However, in case of kidney problems, excess potassium may build up in the body. This excess can cause the irregular heart beat or other such heart issues. In such cases, reducing potassium in the diet can bring the potassium level in blood to normal.

Here are some recipes based on South Indian cooking for diets requiring low potassium. Do feel free to comment and suggest on the same ….
