Cooking oil is a liquid fat that comes from plants, animals, or synthetic sources and is used in frying, baking, and other sorts of cooking. It's also known as edible oil because it's used in non-heated food preparation and flavouring, such as salad dressings and bread dips. At room temperature, cooking oil is usually a liquid, while some saturated fat oils, such as coconut oil, palm oil, and palm kernel oil, are solid. Oils are the basis of many popular recipes and are used in a variety of cooking techniques, including sautéing, frying, roasting, and baking. Some recipes don't mention which oil to use, while others do. And, believe it or not, experimenting with something other than what's on the menu may result in a better meal. Any beneficial fats and antioxidants in an oil burn along with it as it smokes or burns. The oil will also produce free radicals, which can be harmful and cause health issues, particularly if you use burned oil frequently. The smoke point temperature of various cooking oils varies and that's why it is advised to choose cooking oils wisely.

Here are some types of cooking oil you can use for dinner-

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has a lot of fantastic health benefits that come from using it on your skin, hair, and especially in your diet! Coconut oil fats convert to energy more quickly than other fats, which helps to enhance metabolism, limit hunger, and aid weight loss. Replace some of the heavier fats you're used to with this healthy fat, and you'll reap the benefits of both health and flavour. Coconut oil is the ideal cooking oil for sauteing and roasting because of its moderate heat roasting level.
