Also known as groundnut oil, this is obtained from the peanut. In the US, this oil is mostly clear and mild-tasting because of the refining process used. Chinese peanut oil has a more pronounced peanut taste. Peanut oil is high in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats which makes it ideal for stir-frying or as a dressing base. Use of peanut oil in cooking can cause illness for those allergic to peanuts, so care should be taken.


Peanut oil is often found in recipes that also contain scallions, peas, oyster sauce, sesame oil, rice wine and dumpling wrappers
