Lauki Ka Raita Mustard Oil

Lauki Ka Raita gives more tasty if we use Mustard Oil. Mustard Oil is one of main ingredient in almost every healthy cooking in world. Mustard oil has high levels of both alpha-linolenic acid and erucic acid. Based on studies done on laboratory animals in the early 1970s, erucic acid appears to have toxic effects on the heart at high enough doses. The pungency of the condiment mustard results when ground mustard seeds are mixed with water, vinegar, or other liquid. By distillation one can produce a very sharp-tasting essential oil, sometimes called volatile oil of mustard, containing more than 92% allyl isothiocyanate. The pungency of allyl isothiocyanate is due to the activation of the TRPA1 ion channel in sensory neurons.

Allyl isothiocyanate serves the plant as a defense against herbivores. Since it is harmful to the plant itself, it is stored in the harmless form of a glucosinolate, separate from the myrosinase enzyme. Once the herbivore chews the plant, the noxious allyl isothiocyanate is produced.  It can be produced synthetically, sometimes known as synthetic mustard oil. Mustard oil is popular as a cooking oil in northern India. It is also famous in Pakistan.


Decorate with Coriander or Mint Leaves. You may also use green chillies if you don’t have red chillies at your place. For getting more healthy taste i suggest you to use black salt { kala namak }.
