So, “What the heck is Ghee?” you ask. Please allow me to enlighten you on the best butter you’ll ever taste. Ghee (also known as clarified butter) has long been a staple in the ayurvedic diet. It is recommended for all doshas and is said to have many benefits. There’s a lot of hype out there about ghee and its health benefits, but please keep in mind that it is still a saturated fat (it comes from an animal) and should be used sparingly. In my opinion it tastes much better than regular butter with a slightly nutty flavor from the cooking process. It  can be stored without refrigeration for extended periods of time provided you keep it in an airtight container.

Most Indian cuisine uses ghee as an ingredient and it is available at most health food stores if you decide not to make it yourself. Follow this link to find some authentic recipes using ghee. Ghee and rice? Yes please!

Enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and let me know how it goes! Namaste
