Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that the oil you used for cooking was stale and caused the gastric upset.
You can take some general measures for symptomatic relief like-
1. You can start by taking a soft, bland food: toast, bananas, crackers, plain rice, cooked carrots, boiled potatoes, baked chicken ~ no skin, etc.
2.Replace lost fluid and salts: Take broth, soup, fruit juices, soft fruits, or vegetables.
3.Avoid the following foods: Dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.), Cold drinks - stick to warm tea or water as long as symptoms persist, Raw fruits and vegetables, fried & greasy food and fast food, spicy food, caffeine,etc.
If the symptoms are not relieved , medical treatment is needed after proper examination.
Till then you can get Omeprazole and Domperidone from your nearest pharmacy and take it twice daily. Taking an antacid like Gelusil after every light meal will also help you.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
