You can use Ghee instead of oil, butter and even milk. It's a healthy alternative that boosts the flavour of your meals.
Ghee is a type of clarified butter. To make ghee, quality unsalted butter is heated over low heat until the water evaporates and the milk solids separate. The milk solids are then strained out, leaving the clear, golden liquid of pure butterfat that is ghee.
Ghee is such a popular choice among foodies, nutritionists and chefs. It adds a rich and buttery flavour to your food that's different from regular butter. It has a nutty, camerlised taste and adds a depth of flavour like no other butter or oil. Ghee has a high smoke point, which means you can cook with it at high temperatures without it burning or smoking. So, it's great for frying and roasting, making the best oven roasted chips and roast veggies ever. Ghee is often used in curries, roasted vegetables, scrambled eggs, and baked goods like biscuits and cakes. Cooking with ghee takes the flavour of your meals to the next level without sacrificing on health.
Ghee has some great health benefits. It's high in healthy fats like omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids, and contains vitamins A, D, E, and K. Ghee can be easier to digest for people who are lactose intolerant, and it contains butyric acid, which may help improve gut health. Ghee also has anti-inflammatory properties due to a compound called butyrate, and it's rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that can help promote weight loss. However, ghee is still a high-fat food, so it should be consumed a balanced diet. If you have a dairy allergy or intolerance, you should avoid consuming ghee.
Ghee can be used in place of milk when blended with black coffee. It's a popular option with people on a keto diet or who like to fast and is sometimes referred to as a bullet coffee. The Ghee's carameilsed flavour enhances the taste of your brew. Plus, it's high in healthy fats that can keep you feeling full and satisfied. It also provides a steady source of energy through out the day, without the crashes you can sometimes get when you drink coffee and it is said to boost your brain function. Simply add a spoon full of ghee to your black coffee and blend it for 10 to 30 seconds and you will have made yourself a 'bullet coffee'.
