We Always use Groundnut oil


In bygone years there was Postman  oil which is gone now
Then  Guinea groundnut oil , but much expensive  and quality  not that great , on the contrary degraded but brand inflated  price
Then started  K k  groundnut oil  , then 2 – 3  times found it adulterated and degraded left it
Then started Dhara groundnut Oil  which we still continue with alternate sometimes with Patanjali  and Gulab oil .

In cold pressed used 24 mantra  and gramiya groundnut  oil  when .

You forgot to add Filtered oil in poll
Oils are chemically refined and for filteration its different materials used to filter .

Always make sure to use filtered oil and stay away from refined oils.

By the way evey thing is ripped of natural oil in modern market the smell , the colour , the taste , the foam . Each thing is removed by adding chemicals.

generally cold pressed(sometimes not) canola oil from jivo, hudson and vedaka. it was a brilliant loot when vedaka used to sell their 5l canola oil jerrycan for 650-750 and it had no distinct smell which I liked. in case I am out of canola oil I will just get safolla gold 1l till I can order canola oil with some discounts.

other than that I also have dabur cold pressed mustard oil for stuff like Fish coz I am bengali
also i buy ‘whatever is relatively cheaper’ extra virgin olive oil for those rare salad and pasta times.
btw i mostly avoid deep fried stuff. i have puri, paratha maybe once every 5-6 months and generally fry anything in very less oil. so oil usage in my household is very less and it is deliberate.

anything non-refind will be good to go for me.

Prefer kachi ghaani Sarso oil.

for daily cooking: kachi ghani mustard oil, not the cold-pressed
for the rare deep frying on special occasions: ghee

Filtered oils are oils filtered through strainers or others equipments to remove the solid particles and contaminants from the oil but no chemicals are used in the process. They are generally dark and cloudy in appearance and have a peculiar seed smell from which they are extracted. Filtered oils are better than refined ones as they are less processed and treated hence have a higher value of nutrients in them. They are produced at a lower temperature so the nutrients are retained and the fatty acid bonds do not become toxic. In case of refined oils, the process is done at a much higher temperature so the oil does not retain any of its natural flavour or taste. Refined oils are devoid of beta carotene, vitamin E and minerals.

For filter oil you need only the best grade of seed which isnt the case in refined oils as any seed even if it has gone bad can be used in this process.
Refined oils are generally treated with chemicals to further rid the oil from impurities, odour and give it a more clear appearance.

Use as little oil as possible for cooking (specially if your lipid profile is all bad or you comes under high risk group for heart disease).

For last 30 years we have been mainly using a mix of cold pressed Seasam oil, Kachchi Ghani Mustard oil & Rice bran oil, in the ratio of 1:1:3.

Also use Sunflower oil for the purpose of frying flour/maida items like puri and a mix of butter and sunflower oil for chinese/italian/continental cooing.

I dont know if rice bran oil is good for health because of pesticides getting into food chain via bio-accumulation. I use to grow paddy in our fields usually ponni variant which is 6 months period to harvest during that period pesticides are sprayed on the paddy crop which bio-accumulates in rice bran oil. Correct me If I am wrong.
