I've tried Veg Biryani dish yesterday but I was failed to know the amount of salt to be added. Its tasting little bit salty. I've to cook it again today night. Can somebody tell me how to reduce the salty taste in case Veg Biryani or any dish?

    I hesitate to say this lest I sound facetious but... use less salt? Feb 4 '14 at 11:14
  • Dear ElendilTheTall, If some dish is perfectly done but ruined just because of bit extra salt then should someone throw it in dustbin??

    Are you saying you are cooking a new biryani tonight or you are reheating the same, over-salted one? It is not clear from your question. Naturally if you are reheating the salty one there is little you can do. Feb 4 '14 at 11:45
  • I want to reheat the yesterday's biryani also and want to cook new one again and also in case this situation will occur may in future then want some solution that will solve this case.

    @TheDK there isn't anything you can do to remove salt from an already cooked dish. You can dilute the dish with something you think fits the taste, or cook a second batch without salt and all and mix the two batches. But salt, once added, won't go away.
