Hi peepsThis is my first post after a couple of weeks on the site and wow what a site it is, so much info my head is spinning!!!Anyway to get to the point, all the recipes I've read seem to specify "veg oil" but which oil do you think is best?For me a good oil can make or break a curry, its the base of the base so to speak. Over the years I must have tried most of them but for the last year or so I've been using something called "Carotino" which is a blend of red palm and canola oil. Its a deep orange/red colour and cholesterol free but high in vitamins A & E and omegas 3 & 6 and has no trans fats. Just as importantly its a joy to cook with having a very high smoking point, great for stir frying and sealing meats etc. and it gives everything a lovely sheen making curries in particular look wonderful. The only downside is the price...?2 for a 500ml bottle, more expensive than some olive oils!!!Still in this case you do get what you pay for and for me at least it represents good value.This is not an advert I'm just a very satified customer and wondered wether anyone else had tried it or had any other suggestions/comments.RegardsMatt.
