Know Ghee Better

Pure Ghee or Desi Ghee as it is also called, has been part of Indian cooking for centuries. A staple in traditional Indian cooking and Ayurvedic medicine, ghee should be made the Ayurvedic way through a simple process of boiling butter and then pouring off the butterfat, eliminating the proteins and the milk solids. What’s left is also known as pure ghee which is nutrient-rich and free of milk proteins.
According to Ayurveda, ghee promotes longevity and protects the body from various diseases. It aids the digestive process and improves absorption and assimilation. It improves memory and strengthens the brain and nervous system. What’s more, ghee also lubricates the connective tissues, making the body more flexible.
Scientific and nutritional properties aside, lovers of pure ghee claim it tastes better than any other butter or oil. Compared to others, pure ghee has a nuttier ‘buttrier’ flavour and a rich golden colour. Just a small quantity can add a lot of flavour to your cooking.

People in the subcontinent use in curries, to make parathas, in sweets and even as a topping in a bowl of daal (lentils). It must be noted that to enjoy its complete benefits and taste, ghee must be prepared the right way, following traditional methods. A slight change in preparation would give you just clarified butter, not pure ghee.

Using traditional methods of preparation has been the strength of Sharma’s Kitchen for their 20 years plus history in Australia. After leading the market with Indian style Yoghurt and Paneer, Sharma’s Kitchen created another winner in their Pure Desi Ghee.
