Did you know that you can use ghee in everyday cooking?
Ghee is a clarified butter popularly known as a healthy cooking ingredient from India. A spoonful of Ghee added to every dish will leave a remarkable taste on your palate.
You can use ghee as your primary cooking fat because it is incredibly versatile. It can be used for both cooking and baking.
Here are some advantages of cooking and baking using Ghee
Ghee has a smoking temperature of about 450 degrees Fahrenheit (butter is 350 degrees). You can sauté without worrying about burning the taste.
Pro-tip: It’s perfect for sautéing vegetables.
Ghee can be a substitute for butter in any recipe. It is favorable to use ghee because it adds a distinctive and stronger nutty flavor.
Ghee’s high smoke point makes it suitable for roasting without the risk of destroying important nutrients that it contains. Mix it with herbs and spices and rub it on the meat before roasting. Hmm… I can smell it!
High smoke point is an advantage of ghee when frying. Try scrambled eggs. It won’t burn easily and adds a creamier aftertaste.
