Yashkri Cooking oils | Product Review !

Yashkri Oil is known for their pure, natural and chemical free oils.. They are wood pressed and are made from the highest grade of raw ingredients to produce the best quality oil to the consumers.  I have been using since a month now, its really flavorful and enhances the taste. I am happy to share today my review comments on them. 

Many friends know my Tamil Brahmin background, but few have been asking me to share about myself. I am yet to update my page in detail:-) will be sharing a bit here.

I am a palakkad tamil brahmin but since my grandfather had postings in Mysore and Devanahalli- Karnataka, my father eventually settled in Bangalore and so I  was born and brought up in Bangalore.  Post marriage, I had to move to Chennai as my hubby was from there.

This fact really helped to learn various food items from these 3 states.  India is Unique and so is its food items from all the states.   I use Coconut oil when cooking Kerala Food Items, Peanut/Groundnut oil for Karnataka food items and Gingely /Sesame Seed oil for Tamil Nadu Food Items. 

I am used to all flavours and all cooking oil since young, so when Yashkri approached me for collaboration and review, I was happy to try out all their oil products. 

The packing is excellent and prompt fast delivery. Customer service is great.

It comes in 500ml and 1000ml

Gingely/Sesame Oil -Black sesame seeds are rich in protein, potassium, magnesium, calcium and zinc compared to the white seeds based oil. It is useful for remedying arthritis and has various other health benefits. 

Nallennai, as called in Tamil, can be seen used in various diff ways across Tamil Nadu.  Vathal Kuzhambu+ Nallennai, Idli coated with Dosai Milagai podi+ Nallennai - Wow what a combination. it has its own way of adding great flavour and taste to food items. There were times when no week ends were complete without Nallennai bath. It has such great medical benefits that it was applied from top to toe. 

Benefits (Courtesy Google)

  • High in antioxidants. Sesame oil contains sesamol and sesaminol, two antioxidants that have very good effects on your health.
  • Has strong anti-inflammatory properties
  • Good for your heart
  • Helps to control blood sugar
  • A best medicine for mouth ulcer 
Coconut Oil - Pure coconut oil is also a very healthy oil. this again has multi purpose. Apart from adding great aroma to food, it has the below listed benefits as well. due to its medical benefits, it is also called "Sarva Vyaidhi Nivarani" meaning a cure for all diseases.  in Kerala, day starts and ends with coconut oil I can say.

  • Contains healthy fatty acids and is high in saturated fats.(Courtesy Google)
  • It helps to 
    • Reduce hunger. 
    • Reduce seizures.
    • Raises HDL (good) cholesterol. 
    • Best oil for getting glowing skin and shiny hair.

Groundnut /Peanut Oil - Its beautiful aroma of peanut has an amazing flavour. This oil has high smoke point so used to fry foods. The major component of fatty acids found in peanut oil is  oleic acid and viatmin E. The daily intake of peanut oil helps in prevent aging of wrinkles, prevent thrombosis, protect walls of vessel, prevent coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis.

Benefits (Courtesy Google)

  • Its very good to Heart Health with high levels of vitamin E and monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (unsaturated “good fats”), peanut oil could be good for the heart.
  • Better Diabetes Control.
  • Lower Cholesterol.

Ghee - cow ghee is very important in Indian cooking. We use it for many sweets, pulav and in baking also. This ghee is very grainy, flavour and rich in aroma and gives immense satisfaction while consuming. Consuming 1 teaspoon of ghee daily in your food is very good for health.

Ghee contains an ample quantity of butyrate, and that is one of the reasons cow ghee works as a mild laxative. Moderate consumption of cow ghee in daily diet helps in reducing the problem of constipation.

I have used them in my daily cooking, love the flavour, aroma and taste of the oils.  Posting few dishes for you. Check these at
