Good article anil! Nowadays many people go all out to promote Olive oil which is very expensive in Indian markets since it has to come from either Italy,Spain or Israel...However,we have a cheaper option in Sunflower oil which is almost as good and plentifully available here in India and much cheaper,
I feel that the best thing to do would be to cut down on fried stuff and use less oil in all the dishes..
