Chandigarh, October 30, 2015 (Kalsi):- Diwali brings the glow of diyas, shimmer of sparklers, giggling children and a vast cornucopia of sweets and savouries in an unending stream, day on day, for almost a week. While this indulgence is only once a year, we can “lighten up” for Diwali with the use of canola oil.

This heart-healthy cooking oil is light in texture and colour with a neutral flavour and high heat tolerance that gives Diwali treats the same, traditional taste. Canola oil is one of the healthiest cooking oils in the world. Switching to it is a suggestion you can share with your readers (see box below). All of the rich dishes traditionally made with ghee or other cooking oils can this year be made with canola oil – the smart choice for festival cooking.


Canola oil is a multi-purpose oil that can be used for deep-frying, baking, sautéing, stir-frying and cold dishes. Its neutral taste does not impact the flavours of other ingredients in a dish. Its light texture does not make food heavy or greasy. Moreover, canola oil’s high heat tolerance makes it ideal for turning out deep-fried food that is golden perfection.

This Diwali, urge your readers to welcome canola oil into their kitchens to bring lightness and better nutrition into their lives.
