A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent
I have been using Rice Bran Oil in my kitchen for sometime now and I always feel the food cooked with it feels lighter, so when Fortune Rice Bran Oil contacted me to design recipes for them I was more than happy to.
Fortune along with sending the oil, sent a list of benefits of Rice Bran Oil and some myths to be debunked around it. Some of them so interesting, According to them it is less oily and I have to agree to this one
Less-oily, healthy food: Cooking oils become sticky due to oxidation during frying. Rice bran oil is highly stable which keeps it non-sticky and the food absorbs lesser oil.
Also a common myth is that Rice bran is made from rice, they clarify it here
Is FRBH oil made from rice? And can’t be consumed during fasts. No, it is made from the bran of rice, a nutritious brown layer between the grain and husk. Bran is the only source of Oryzanol, which helps reduce cholesterol and prevents heart disease. It can be consumed during fasts.
Recipe : Three Bean Cutlet
Serves : 3-4
