PUVI means Earth, a reminder of the soil we so value. The products come from a family-run business that's been in agriculture for centuries. Puvi Cold Pressed Mustard oil is an all-purpose, healthy cooking choice. A preferred choice in the Northern and Eastern states of India, Mustard oil is widely used for all sorts of Indian recipes that demand high-temperature cooking. It adds to the taste and gives a distinct flavour to all your dishes. Use it for Sauteing, frying, deep frying or pickling, the dishes are going to be extremely flavourful.
We ensure to extract our oil only from the best quality Mustard seeds so that the flavours and the nutrients are retained. The Cold Pressed Mustard oil is unrefined and clarified naturally. So, the oil may appear a bit cloudy or have tiny sediments at the bottom of the bottle; but it is not a cause of concern. It signifies that the Mustard Oil is not processed incessantly that erode the oil of the naturally occurring nutritional value.
This is not a mass production oil, it's a really pure handcrafted oil made for the discerning customers who appreciate quality.
We maintain an all-natural production process and don’t standardise our Cold Pressed Mustard oils using artificial colours or essences. There may be a minor difference in aroma and colour across batches. Foaming/Frothing can happen during deep frying in any cold pressed, raw oil. It's because of excessive moisture in food and oil heat. Try frying a small ball of tamarind first to prevent frothing.
Cold Pressed oil is extracted from nuts and seeds at temperatures not exceeding 50 degrees Celsius. There is no addition of any solvent to increase the Oil production or any other artificial methods. Due to lower temperature of extraction, Cold Pressed Oils are rich in nutrients, flavour and aroma. On the contrary, during the production of Refined Oils, excessive heat and chemical solvents are used which enhance the production. However, in the process the refined oils lose the nutritional values.
Puvi Mustard Oil is ideal to be used for Sauteing, Deep Frying, Frying, Pickling.
Puvi Cold Pressed Mustard Oils are extracted from superior quality Mustard seeds that are not malformed. We make sure to chose from fresh batches of seeds so that Pesticides, etc. have not been used during the storage. As the oil is extracted using the Cold Pressing methods, the amount of oil extracted is substantially low compared to the refined oils that are extracted using high temperatures. Maintenance of the superior quality of oils increases the cost of production which makes Puvi Cold Pressed Oils a bit high priced than the unhealthy refined oils.
Our oils are filtered naturally due to which you might find some sediments of the groundnuts at the bottom. This also causes the oil to look cloudy when shaken.
At the time of cold pressing, little bit of water is added to the seeds to keep the temperature low so that the nutritional value, flavour and aroma of the oil is retained. This caused the oil to froth, when heated. To reduce the froth try adding a little bit of Tamarind while heating the oil. Once the oil is heated, remove the tamarind and continue with your cooking as usual.
Litre is a measure of volume while Kg is the measurement of weight. And, depending on the density of the liquid the amount of litres in 1 Kg differs from one to another. For example, while 1-litre Groundnut oil weighs approx. 900gm, 1-litre water weighs equal to 1 Kg of water.
