A staple of Indian cooking, ghee is made by simmering and clarifying butter of all its milk solids. The ghee is the remaining butter fat, which solidifies at room temperature and has a high smoking point. This golden butter is nutritious, lactose-free, flavorsome, and packed with antioxidants that help strengthen the immune system, increasing its appeal as a health-conscious dairy alternative.
