Choosing healthy with Oleev Active

By 01:51 Wednesday, 15 February 2017

The only thing that can get me out of bed on a Sunday is food. I am not a great cook but excuse me for bragging, I'm an excellent helper in the kitchen-my mom agrees. Sunday breakfast for us is all about indulging in our favourite {mostly fried} Indian snacks which are usually not the best examples of healthy. This time, we collectively voted for Vada Pao. In this post, I'm going to give you my mom's kickass recipe for making vada pao and a simple trick to make it a lot healthier.


- 4 medium sized potatoes (makes 6-7 vadas)
- Spices: mustard seeds, red chilli, salt, turmeric, garam masala, coriander powder, dry mango powder
- 4 tablespoon gram flour
- Finely chopped garlic
- Green chillies
- Oleev Active oil
- Mint and coriander chutney 


- Heat a bit of Oleev Active oil in a frying pan, and add mustard seeds and garlic.
- Add mashed boiled potatoes along with all the spices (as per your taste). Mix nicely and let it cook.
- Once the mixture cools down a bit, make small, round patties. Let the patties sit in the freezer for 4-5 minutes
- In the meanwhile, take the gran flour in a bowl, add water, salt, turmeric and red chilly powder and mix will. The consistency should be runny.
- Take the patties and dip them into the batter, coating them completely.
- Heat Oleev Active Oil in a deep-frying pan and fry the batter-coated patties till they are golden-brown.
- Split the pao and insert the vadas.(I usually like to use burger buns)
- Serve with fried green chillies and green chutney.

While the basic recipe is pretty standard, I switched to a healthier alternative to my regular cooking oil- Oleev Active. We've been using it at home since a week and have decided to switch to it permanently! The packaging is pretty handy and comes with an 'oilometer' to keep a check on how much oil you're consuming and when there's a need of restocking.

Why Oleev Active?

Oleev Active is an everyday cooking oil with the goodness of Olive oil, specially created for everyday Indian cooking. Unlike other oils, it has an EnergoculesTM formula that will ensure you stay active and energized throughout the day. It also comes with Oryzanol, a powerful natural anti-oxidant that helps maintain the cholesterol level, while taking care of other lifestyle conditions like diabetes and obesity. A big plus for me is that the absorption of oil is up to 20% less which automatically makes food lighter and healthier.

Price: INR 165/litre

Available at all leading departmental stores.
