If you ask me who is your favourite chef? My answer- my mother is my favourite chef. I noticed that she always used mustard oil for her cooking that gives a special smell to the food. That special smell used to make us realized that mom is cooking for us. We know there are many benefits of mustard oil. Till mid 80s she used mustard oil. All of my siblings loved her cooking. Even if it is a normal menu but the taste was awesome. Her every kind of cooked dish and even some pickles were just awesome. She loved to cook and like to invite people every time. There was not any day when she ate without a guest. She passed away 14 years ago but still I remembered smell of her food.
My mother lately suffered from gastritis pain. Many of us said that mustard oil could have increased the gastritis. At that time soya bean oil came in the market. The oil was cheaper and people said that it is healthy and light. So the soya bean oil easily got popularity. Since then we have been using soya bean oil for cooking. But until now some of us are suffering from gastritis even from early age. My nieces and nephew, both are suffering from severe gastritis from their early age. Now I realized that use of mustard oil as the reason for gastritis was a rumour for marketing the soya bean oil and they were successful.
Now a day occasionally we use mustard oil for some special cooking and particularly for making pickles. Since, mustard oil is costlier than soya bean oil, people do not afford to use it for regular cooking specially for frying that requires huge amount of oil. We know there are many benefits of mustard oil. I saw my father always used mustard oil as a lotion. He rubbed his body with mustard oil before his shower. He also put mustard oil in his nose, ear, and belly button. He told us that this oil protected him from cold and coughing. Believe me or not, we really didn’t see him never suffering from cold or coughing. It really worked for him. Until now whenever we are caught by severe cold, asthma and cough, we use boiled mustard oil with garlic. It gives us relief. Mustard oil is very good tonic for new born baby.
