The word ‘Ghee’ derives from the ancient Sanskrit word ‘Ghrita’. Ghee is basically a type of clarified butter and finds common use in a number of different cuisines including Indian, Middle Eastern, and Southeast Asian.
Ghee is an important part of many medicinal preparations too. It is commonly prepared by allowing butter to simmer. The butter is churned out from cream wherein impurities are skimmed and the clear liquid fat retained. Spices might be added for flavor. There are several factors that influence the color, taste, and texture of ghee. This includes the source of milk, the quality of butter, and the time for which boiling takes place.
