Using cooking oil

  1. When cooking with oil the two things to be kept in mind are quantity and the smoke point.
  2. Deep frying or even shallow frying is not recommended as the food soaks up a lot of oil making it very greasy and less nutritious.
  3. When cooking with oil try and use seasoned heavy bottomed or non stick pan. This will help you cook tasty foods with less oil.
  4. Choose oils with a high smoke point that won’t burn at a high heat. When oil is over heated all the natural antioxidants and beneficial fatty acids present in it are lost.
  5. Rice bran, avocado, soy and safflower oils have high smoke points and are the best choices for any high heat cooking like searing, browning or frying. A healthy and economic option would be rice bran oil.
  6. Sesame peanut and canola oils also have smoke point over 200 degree celsius.
  7. Oil sprays or pumps are convenient alternative that could cut down on the amount of oil used in your cooking.
  8. Olive, avocado or flax seed oils are best choices for salad dressing as they are flavoursome and also rich in antioxidants.
