One country but why we are using different kinds of oils. Confused and don't know which oil is good for health.

Friends share here what you use and it benefits. Suggest me which oil to use for cooking.

Best cooking Oil

We are using different kinds of oil as per the seasons and cultivation. You can take Kerala peoples they use coconut oil since coconut is cultivated more, Tamil peoples use Groundnut oil and gingelly oil since ground nut and sesame plants are cultivated more here and North Indians use mustard oil since they cultivate it more.

Whatever may be the oil but it should be used in lesser amount of quantity.

We can also use different oils for different recipes.
1. For doing pickles and Puli kuzhambu we can use Gingelly Oil.
2. For doing Avial, kootu and etc we can use Coconut oil.
3. For doing Biryani we can use Sunflower oil with added Ghee.
4. For doing some recipes like Upma, etc Groundnut oil will be good.

the "ideal" cooking oil should contain higher amount of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and with minimal or no saturated fats and trans fats.
