LITTLE SECRETS FOR EASY AND HEALTHY FRYING
It is good and healthy to use olive oil, in spite of some opposite opinions that are heard. Oil becomes unhealthy when it fries, but from all frying oil (seed oil) the olive oil is harder ravaged. However, the oil of the frying pan should not be overused. We should fry in a temperature of 180-190 C or as soon as the oil starts to "fumigate". In this temperature the olive oil is harder ravaged, while it is easier for all the other kind of seed oils.
Furthermore in this temperature an external crust is created in all frying food, fish - vegetables - French fries etc., with the result to be lighter, healthier and not to give us a lot of fat. Moreover, this hard external crust that is created, prevents the juices of the food to go away, and the food can be fried remaining the nutritious ingredients, be delicious and fluffy.
