Using cooking oil and panneer -- what is the truth?Those who are strictly vegetarian are often confronted with news that comes straight on the face. The use of oil is one such. Some years ago, everyone thought Gingely oil is the best. Then there was a huge propaganda to use refined oil. Some years later, even this was not said to be safe. The new thing recommended was the sunflower oil. Of late, we hear that any oil manufactured through the traditional "wood press" method is the best.
What is the actual truth? One does not know the medical benefits, of each. At least what is told by so many, is confusing to say the least.
Perhaps Rao sir and others, who know the scientific basis, may please respond. Another thing is the use of panner. I think it is written with the double n in it. The taste of panner butter masala is very good. Even here, some doctors advise that this should be taken in very small quantities.
Can anyone please respond on this too?
