Oil, also known as groundnut oil or arachis oil, is a mild-tasting vegetable oil derived from peanuts. The oil is available with a strong peanut flavour and aroma, analogous to sesame oil.
This mild tasting oil, derived from peanuts, has been in the Indian Kitchens for generations. It is less refined as compared to some other oils which is why it retains the taste of groundnut as well as high protein content. With a high smoking point, it is one of the best oils for fyring dishes. Not just Indian cuisine, groundnut oil is very popular in Chinese cuisine as well.
