Here's how to cook in the most healthy way possible.


Measure up:

Always use a spoon to measure oil when you start cooking, and never pour oil into the cooking pan directly.


Alternative methods:

There are cooking methods like steaming, baking, broiling, grilling and stir-frying in a small amount of oil. As far as possible, choose these over deep-frying.


Get fit:

Even when you stir-fry in a small amount of fat, remember to take out the fried food on an absorbent paper napkin to remove extra oil.


Piping hot:

Always heat oil thoroughly before cooking food, because cold oil is absorbed more readily than hot.
