I use it instead of oil when making curries e.g frying the chopped onions and what not. Usual consistency is like soft butter but if it is stored outside the fridge and gets too warm, it can melt. Although it can be stored in a cupboard, I treat it like butter/marge and keep it in the fridge.

What the heck is ghee?



Ghee is an Indian name for clarified butter. It is made from the milk of a buffalo or a cow and is 'the' essential thing for many traditional Indian recipes. However, it is certainly not suitable for those with heart problems or for those who are over-weight.

Heat this with chilli sauce and vinegar to make awesome Buffalo Wing sauce. The buttery taste really makes it wow.

heart attack in a can.

Much worse than vegetable fat as this is 100% animal fat (worse than butter which has some water in it).

Or for those of us who grew up in less politically correct times its what you get when you chase a tiger round and round a tree so fast that it melts.

Ha ha! the dietary cholesterol/heart attack myth pushers are out in force! get with the program peeps, get informed! knowledge is power! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8WA5wcaHp4

The crossfit paleo community will attest that cooking with clarified butter (ghee) is a wonderful way to get the much needed saturated fat that your brain and 50 trillion human cells are all made from. Heart attacks and hardening of the arteries (Atherosclerosis) is down to eating things that cause inflammation (high fructose corn syrup,sugar,grains, milk suger = lactose)

I would recommend cold pressed virgin coconut oil over this as it has a higher smoke point and more MCT oil, but (butter) ghee is a great health food

Nothing wrong with ghee imo, but tbh I think it's a bit disappointing because when I cook curries or biryanis with it the lovely fragrant buttery aroma it has seems to disappear, so I may as well have just used sunflower oil (which is cheaper).

Fancy stuff.

Thanks for posting.

I used to use Gee but it has a limited shelf life once opened.
Now i do my initial frying in veg oil which is cheaper and then add a knob of butter at the end for flavour - which is also cheaper.

I eat Ghee and Coconut oil on a daily basis.

I am losing alot of fat eating alot of fat.

A paleo diet is awesome.

Its purrrrrfect

The thing about these old Indian women that I don't understand is, why must they wear outfits that show off their flab? It's like they're flaunting it.

I've recently started cooking with ghee, and the most important thing I've heard in terms of storage is to store it in an airtight container. I use the plastic lid the ghee came with, hopefully this will suffice.

Room temp should be fine, after all, the majority of Indians don't have fridges, but I can believe refrigeration would be better.
