Chinese salt ban renders Chitral hotel foods tasteless!
Chitral: Upon the direction of the provincial govt, the district administration has not only banned but has started confiscating Chinese salt a.k.a Ajino moto, from the shops in the bazars. It’s immediate effect was seen on Thursday when a person who is fond of and regular eater of Kabuli palao from the bazar restaurants said he noticed that the pulao was tasting pheeka (bland). This shows how much is our food dependent on artificial and harmful flavorings and we cannot cook tasty food without these chemicals. The general health of the population is also poor mainly because of eating substandard food. The irony of the matter is so intense that people cannot digest pure ghee but are Ok with synthetic cooking oils. .. CN report, 22 Feb 2018
