A question about a recipe: Chickpea Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

I have a question about the recipe "Chickpea Fries with Yogurt Dipping Sauce" from Justforlicks. What is the best vegetable oil for this recipe? I 'm not an experienced deep fryer and want to do it right, because I imagine these are very good.

I'm not sure as I didn't develop the recipe but generally speaking any vegetable oil will be ok. The real key is keeping the oil at an even temperature. This recipe doesn't given a temperature for frying but if you have a thermometer that can go in oil then use it to keep the oil at around 365 degreesF. If you don't have one then watch your fries so that they don;t brown on the outside too quickly. Keep adjusting your flame so that the fries cook evenly

My suggestion would be peanut oil or corn oil. The thing to keep in mind is that it needs to be an oil with a high smoke point. I would take it a little higher than Monita to 375F. Use a candy thermometer, they're cheap.
