Tracing its roots to ancient India, Ghee is a vital element of the Indian culinary. A traditional Indian dish or dessert essentially contains Ghee. It has a rich, nutty like aromatic flavor. Also at times Ghee is added to a dish or dessert once it is cooked and ready to serve as it uplifts the flavor and fragrance of the dish to a whole new level. In a layman prospective at times ghee is referred to as traditional clarified butter, though in reality it follows a different production process from clarified butter and thus is not exactly clarified butter.
It is widely available commercially in packaged form and can also be prepared fresh at home. A lot of Indian households prefer to make fresh Ghee at home for the purity and enhanced flavors.
