So I really love watching street food videos. What I noticed however is that in India, Pakistan and some of the other poorer countries the oil they use is black. Is this just an old oil that took on the color from the spices they cook the food in or do they use a certain type of oil that looks darker than what we're used to in the west?

Here's an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYNSVbByi1U

Lets make this a street food video thread, please post your favorite.

It's because of all the poo they don't get in the loo since they wipe with their hands.

It's not gutter oil.

The refining process, if you don't bleach the oil or filter our all non oil particles. You'd get that kind of dark oxidation from impurities. This kind of darkness is kind of like olive oil's impurities. Not harmful and arguably provide additional flavor.

The second type is that the vendor in order to save cost. Keep using the same pot of oil without changing.

Considering this is india, it's probably combination of both factors. You have unfiltered oil and used for way too low for frying.

I had a feeling it would be something like this. At first I thought it might be an oil from a grain that produces a darker oil but then I couldn't figure out what grain would cause that. Then I thought about refining like they do with extra virgin oils and then the next batches are usually lower quality. Makes sense that they wouldn't go with bleaching cause what's the point. I bet it's healthier that way too. People here would probably be scared that there's something wrong with the oil.
