In Europe we just call that corn oil...it's very healthy.

who puts corn oil in paaye. 100% natural animal fat.

Everyone may have heard of chinese torture. @Ron_Burgundy has invented the Ron Torture - where he feeds you greasy, fatty, spicy but ever so tasty food until you die of a heart attack or obesity. That's the way to go Ron.

The funny thing we had been in Iran for about 6 days and my wife was craving this exact dish - and wouldn't you know it that this is what they served that day.

Not in that dish specifically,  but sadly I've notice that a lot of restaurants they use the cheapest oil.

At times I've had to tip it out.

didn't your parents teach you not to say yuckkk to food?! :mod:

oh come on im talking about flashy picture portrayals....me luv, pur thura sa kum, shura

Actually im a dinner table role model lol. I'm more of a pindi/kerele gosht and karahi chicken man. I usually rinse out most of the oil excess by placing one side of the plate on something to tilt the drippings. Then with loads of tissue I wipe it clean. lol at first the family took the mick but not long after both my father and one of my brothers converted. Now we all sit there with tilted UFO saucers to kill the greasy 'silent assassin'.

That explains British Colonialism - it was always about the oil.

Yesterday's rice in broth with vegetables actually turned out rather reminiscent of biryani. It was delicious.

And then for breakfast I put some in a dish with an egg and microwaved it, and turned it into fried rice. Still delicious.

@saas or maybe just use less oil in the first place?

lol r u serious? Bruce Lee studied every form of martial arts he could get hold of. He said 'then there was one I just couldn't wrap my head around, it was bigger then me'. He was asked 'oh master, which is that?'. He said 'a Pakistani mother with a rolling pin'

Now imagine that conversation:

Son: '"ammi jaan, i want to live past 60, i prefer less oil in the pan"

Ammi: "Acha puttar - eik mint"...........

@saas @hayaah why boycott the fats? Saturated fats are actually good for you. I still eat desi ghee parathas(if you know what desi ghee is) and so do my kids.

Ramen, cause I'm a student who can't afford much. :')

ugh, make an effort and cook your own noodles, pastas and veggies. It will turn out even cheaper than Ramen or canned baked beans or cold sandwiches and other stuff students live off these days.

Reminds me of my healthy eating: vitamin tabs with fish oil, exclude HFCS, low on sugar and then anything else :eat: to my heart's content. l just finished a fish & cheese on toast sandwich.

Yes, desi ghee parathas are yummy, but too much of desi ghee is actually bad for you. It affects your cholesterol levels. Try to have oils that are liquid at room tempertaure I.e vegetable oil, olive oil etc

There is a movement now among certain people in the healthy eating industry to rehabilitate ghee, better if it is from unpasturised grass fed cow's milk.

For me it's not boycotting the fats but favouring small rather than liberal amounts. We use all sorts, veg oil, purer ghee as well as supermarket butter brands. I know many reports suggest ghee being a healthy option but surely that is based on a prescribed amount only. Whereas some people use way too much, even 2-3 times a day, and some don't even burn the fat off properly. On top the risk of increased cholesterol leading to heart disease (something that hasn't been ruled out). I guess all things in good balance make sense.

BTW I love parathas! Super thin and crispy, served hot right off the pan. Wouldn't have it any other way. You could light up the sky and be the brightest star but no one makes parathas like ma rollin pin, hard hittin, mamma - period!

I ate a chicken salad for dinner. My favorite spices for the chicken are Mrs. Dash, Italian Seasoning, Garlic Powder.

I do cook my own noodles XD I can't buy cup ramen noodles cause they have meat stocking in them. 

I end up just buying noodles and halaal stocking and making my own ramen. Sometimes I even make pad thai. owo It's all pretty cheap too. Noodles are about 50 - 99 cents, depending on the type.
