I always loved coconut oil in cooking and for other purposes. I know many people have coconut oil phobia, and seeing their comments in other food blogs prompted me to start a blog for coconut oil to write down some of it's benefits..
Many had left their comments there and seeing this comment yesterday, I thought to share with you, just to make you understand.
Dr. TN from naturalsportsmedicine wrote,
People still think the Saturated fat in coconut is bad for you and that couldn't be further from the truth.
Everyone focuses on fats and cholesterol as the primary problem of our ills when it's really refined sugars and grains.
We were meant to eat a hunter-gatherer diet, not a refined sugar-refined grain diet.
And, best I can tell, coconuts have been something that has been a part of the human diet for over a 100,000 years...
Ok, What about fried rice? I know you all really love it. My version is without ajinomotto (MSG) , I wouldn't use it for cooking. So taste may be different from the real fried rice.
An experienced 'fried rice maker' advised me to keep cooked rice in the refrigerator before making fried rice and mix small portions at first and mix together later.
Basmati rice or biryani rice 1 1/2 cups
mixed vegetables 1 cup chopped (carrot, beans, cabbage , peas, spring onion and celery)
chicken pieces 4 or 5 pieces
pepper powder 3 tsps
soya sauce 2 Tbsp
chilli sauce 1 tsp
Cook rice in water adding salt. Drain and chill.
Cook chicken in water with 1 tsp pepper powder and salt. When cooked take them out and remove from bones. Make small pieces.
Heat oil, saute chopped onion. When it is done , add veggies and saute until well cooked.
Then break one egg into it and scramble it slowly. Add chicken pieces and 2 tsp pepper powder, soya sauce and chilli sauce.
Mix well and add rice too.Shake the pan or stir them well.The taste of fried rice depends on the soya sauce and oil you use,so add it according to your taste.I wouldn't add them much.. :)
