Expert Answer:

  • It is a process of osmosis where liquid moves from the salt present in lower concentration to the salt present in higher concentration.
  • Addition of salt to vegetables while cooking increases the salt concentration outside the  vegetables.
  • The concentration of salt in the body of  vegetables becomes lower  than the outside concentration.
  • Hence, the liquid or water present inside the body of vegetables comes out to maake the concentration equal on both the sides
