Sodium Levels in Indian Food

maestrobrad | Aug 17, 2008 07:17 AM

Hello All-

I have been looking for an answer to this questions for quite some time, but can't find anything helpful. I am under doctor's orders to keep my sodium level each day to 2000mg or less. This means that I need to plan my meals all day to make sure I have enough space in my sodium intake for a dinner out.

I have always loved Indian food, but I have no idea of what the sodium levels are. The major culprits are salt and soy for most foods, but obviously sodium pops up in places you never expect it (just look at your ingredients when you buy anything processed).

Does any know if certain dished are made, or can be made, with low sodium levels at a typical Indian restaurant? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
