I agree, because festival foods generally tend to be very oily and rich, so I would really want to know how can I cut down on oil content in popular recipes, as described above.

Wow...this page has all the information that you need to cook up a feast. While it's best to stay away from oil rich food, i think we can try and make many of these recipes healthy :-) probably by steam cooking or adding less oil...or using a healthy variety of oil. Thanks for this!
