Reusing cooking oil
« on: March 06, 2019, 09:17 AM »
I store and reuse the oil i cook Onion Bhaji's in for both curries and more onion Bhaji's, i dont do the same for oil that i cook poppadoms in because of the flour etc, does anyone here reuse / keep the oil pops were cooked in, or filter it?

I don't do my own poppadoms as they are so cheap to buy at Lidl and Aldi.

I know this isn't strrictly on topic, but, I have a 3-litre deep fryer that I use for chips and other European-style food. I fry pakora etc. in a large wok and always strain and drain the oil off after use, storing it it's own container.

Coincidentally, I was just pondering to myself yesterday how long it was wise to keep the pakora oil until it should be chucked and replaced.

Too true! :)

Just reuse the poppadom oil for anything, as its less contaminated than Bhaji oil.

Filter the Bhaji oil and reuse two or three times for Bhajis then recycle.
