Hello XXXXXXX

After going through the query raised by you I understand your concern for your health and wellbeing and I would like to tell you that the cooking oil which is good for health and heart includes those which have low saturated fat content.

Ideally olive oil, rice XXXXXXX oil, groundnut oil are the best. Choice depends upon taste and budget.

Hope to have been helpful.

Hello Again

Detailed Answer:
As desi ghee is rich in saturated fats and also increases the amount of bad cholesterol levels which ultimately increases atherosclerosis so it's not advisable to consume desi ghee daily. Although occasional use won't cause a problem.

I hope this information will answer your query.
