Ghee is a type of clarified butter known for its rich flavour and aroma, and it is used as a cooking oil and condiment in various cuisines. Ghee is an excellent source of energy and has several health benefits. It helps improve digestive health, aids in weight loss, strengthens bones and joints and promotes healthy skin. It is also packed with essential vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A, E, K, and Calcium.

Enhancing Your Dishes with Ghee
• Ghee can be used instead of butter or other cooking oils, as it has a higher smoke point and a more neutral flavour.
• Consider adding it to rice, frying vegetables or meats, or using it in curries or other dishes.
• Watch out for the servings per meal due to its high-calorie content.
• Adding ghee to rice can slow down the digestion and absorption of glucose, making it a good option for those with diabetes.
• Add ghee to the podi and have it as a chutney with idli/dosa.

Ghee is high in saturated fats, which are known to raise blood cholesterol levels and can increase the risk of heart disease. Despite this, many studies have shown that ghee is healthier than other cooking oils due to its higher smoke point and antioxidant content.
