Nigella's recipes often suggest using "flavourless vegetable oil". What oil should I buy please?

I made the the Crisp Chicken Cutlets from Nigella's Kitchen book. They turned out very nicely except for the fact that the crumb didn't want to stay on the chicken. It would either stick to the pan or just fall off while cooking. Do you have any tips to keep the crumb on the chicken?

I always make the Ultimate Christmas Pudding for my family on Christmas day and they LOVE it. So this year I want to make smaller ones to give as Christmas presents to the family members we won't be seeing. Probably in 1lb sizes or smaller. I just wondered about the time they would require to be steamed for on day of making and on Christmas day. Because I'm sure that the 5hrs initially plus 3 hrs on Christmas day would be far to much for smaller ones. Many Thanks.

I love Nigella's Shortcut Sausage meatballs from her new book and make it both for myself and the 3 boys I nanny for. Is there any point in the recipe that I can freeze it? Many thanks Jo

Hi, I bought a couple of Nigella's cookbooks which mention various websites from which one can order bakeware, ingredients etc. However, most of these sites do not deliver outside the UK. Are there any websites you recommend that are economical and also deliver to India? Many ingredients and also bakeware are not available in India so I would love to know where I can order them online. Thanks.

How do I weigh out 175g/6oz condensed milk for Nigella's One-Step No Churn Coffee Ice Cream (from Nigellissima)? I have just made a batch and guessed at the amount from the 397g tin. Thank you.

I'm hosting Thanksgiving on Saturday (doesn't really work on a Thursday in the UK) and am going to make the chestnut stuffing and the gingerbread stuffing from Feast. How far ahead of time could I make these? Thanks.
