Desi Ghee



Desi Ghee is a type of clarified butter that is used in Indian cuisine. It is made by simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle to the bottom. The remaining golden liquid is then strained and cooled, resulting in a rich, nutty-flavored ghee. Desi Ghee is a staple in many Indian dishes, and is used for sautéing, frying, and baking. It has a high smoking point and is easy to digest.
