What cooking oil do you use?

Its simply taste which matters! I think the quality of the oil should also be good, heart friendly and low on bad cholestrol. We usually buy and consume sunflower oil which is very good for our heart, say saffola or fortune! What about you?

I use gingelly oil for dosa and chappatis and sunflower refined oil for deep frying .Sunflower refined oil is supposed to be good for the heart .But the best oil they say is olive though it is damn costly.How many can afford this? using less oil is very healthy.

we use vegtable oil. I sometimes stock minola, canola and olive oil but i use them for special recipes. For health purposes, we cook with less use of oil except for frying which we seldom do now a days. However, so far the cheapest among the cooking oils here is the vegtable oil.

Sunflower oil is the one I use. It is less expensive than olive oil and has a smoother flavour. Of course the choice of oil depends on the kind of dish you want to use it on. I can use olive oil for the pasta or salad, and I can use the sunflower on my cooked patatoes (as an alternative to butter) or for frying.

in Italy we use a lot of olive oil (extravirgin). we use to flavor pasta, salade, soup and all not cook food. and it is very expensive. my mother bought some olive oils directly from the producer, in the countryside and price was less than buy it in the shops. we use also to cook (for example to cook tomato sausage) but sometimes i use sunflower or peanuts oil.
