Cooking with ghee - 11 recipes

By lazar

The recipe for ghee, or clarified butter, is actually surprisingly simple. When I started making my own ghee at home, it elevated my Indian cooking to a whole new level. If you do decide to go the homemade route, ghee can be kept in a jar in your fridge for as long as you would keep butter, probably even longer! But if you don't have the courage to make it yourself, don't fret, because store bought ghee is just as good. So if you've ever find yourself wondering why sometimes your Indian dishes don't taste as authentic as you'd like, or that they’re missing something that you just can’t seem to put your finger on, then ghee is the secret ingredient that you have been missing.
