So, what is palmurasva?

Palmurasva is a versatile food ingredient that is widely used in South Asian and Southeast Asian cuisines. Also known as palm oil or palm fat, it is extracted from the fruit of the oil palm tree. It has a high smoke point, which makes it perfect for frying, baking, and sautéing. Palmurasva is also used as a substitute for butter in baked goods and spreads due to its creamy texture and mild flavor. Additionally, it is a rich source of vitamin E and beta-carotene, which are essential for maintaining good health. However, concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production, prompting some consumers to seek out sustainable alternatives.
