Indians are fairly new to olive oil. The advent of international cookery and travel shows has somewhat broadened the view of Indians as a whole as far as food is concerned. They are now more likely to try out newer dishes. If you have heard a lot about virgin olive oil India and thinking about introducing it to your diet, then you should be told that there are various ways you can do this. This oil is highly versatile and you can use it in a variety of ways for regular Indian cooking.

Many options out there

The truth is that today’s supermarket shelves are filled with various olive oil brands and it can be a tough process to make the right choice. You may feel uncertain about choosing a good product that is going to make you and your family healthier. When in doubt, it is best to choose extra virgin olive oil any day. This is the oil that gets extracted during the first press of the olives and is therefore considered the best, the healthiest and the most flavourful. It is also the most expensive of the extracts available but if you want to choose something for your family, this should be it.

Using it everyday

After you have made your choice, the next thing to consider is how you are going to use it. Indian cooking involves quite a bit of masalas and you may be wondering how best to incorporate it. Well, there are changes that need to be made but if you are determined, you can do it. Below are some of the ways you can use extra virgin olive oil in Indian cooking:

  • Salads: Today, many people are starting their meals with salads and it is wonderful choice for people who want to keep their calories as low as possible. There are a variety of salads you can rustle up with everyday vegetables and fruits and they offer a colourful way of starting your meal. Drizzle some olive oil on your salad and you will enjoy the flavours it brings to your meal. For people trying to lose weight, making a whole meal out of a bowl of salad with some olive oil dressing can be a great idea.
  • Rice: Rice is eaten a lot by the people in India and it is easy to get tired of the same old steamed rice. Instead, why not make a stir fried rice or a pulao with some olive oil? You can add as many or as little vegetables as you want and the olive oil will provide the added touch of flavour you need.
  • Pasta: Indians love pasta and when you choose wholegrain pasta, you can eat it without any guilt. Tossing up pasta for the whole family is easy as long as you have basil and olive oil in hand. It’s a healthy and filling meal.

There are lots of other ways you can incorporate this healthy oil during mealtimes. So get started!
