You know there’s a layer of ghee dripping from your roti every time you eat at your Nani ke ghar?

It’s her way of showing love by making sure you get all the nutrients and benefits of this ghee(Ghee khane ke fayde).

Ghee is a healthy, shelf-stable alternative to plain butter or other cooking oils. I mean there’s a reason why all our nanis and dadis prefer ghee over anything right?

It is a healthy alternative to butter. It is a pure milk fat and is 100% pure, natural, and unadulterated. It is free from the harmful effects of animal fats and cholesterol. Hence, it stimulates easy digestion.

Yes, I know Ghee has a high content of fat, and no one wants that but hey, it is unsaturated, unsaturated fats do not raise cholesterol levels. Moreover, it helps in weight loss. The dairy-based product is said to have a substance called conjugated linolenic acid. It helps you to feel full for longer. Thus, it helps with weight loss.

Ghee is also rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. So much so that it is valued in Ayurvedic medicine. Ghee can be used to treat burns and swelling.

Desi Ghee does not only have medicinal value but also It’s said that pure desi cow ghee is powerful in giving you soft and supple skin while also hydrating it. My dadi always uses ghee on her skin and always asks me to use it too.

It is very easy to make ghee at home. I have always seen my mother making ghee from leftover malai. Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering unsalted butter or malai until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. Ghee has a very high smoking point which makes it an excellent choice for frying and sauteing. It can be stored without refrigeration for several months.

But now, we’ve started getting ghee from Vijay Dairy. It is as fresh and pure as when we make ghee at home. The golden yellow colour and the smell of ghee of Vijay Dairy ghee feels like home. Everyone in my family has a sweet tooth, and we love making sweets as well. Fresh and pure ghee is a must in our house.
