Pure Indian Foods - Ghee

Review by Lisa VanWilliams
Ghee is clarified butter made from the milk of a cow or buffalo and it's very common in Indian Cooking. Last night I made a huge batch of Chicken Tikka Masala for one of my clients and we fried up the chicken in some Turmeric Superghee from Pure Indian Foods.

Why cook with ghee?

  • It has a higher smoke point than butter, olive oil, & coconut oil
  • Ghee is rich in butyrate which is good for decreasing inflammation and improving the digestive system
  • You can use it externally to treat burns and swelling on the skin
  • It has a great nutty buttery taste great for popcorn, rice, veggies, and bread
  • It does not need to be refrigerated and it has a long shelf life (3 mths)
  • Since ghee is from a cow (a holy animal in India), it is believed to have positive energies
  • low lactose amounts so it's great for dairy intolerances
  • Ghee is rich in fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E, & K
  • Grass-fed cow ghee can help improve insulin resistance to help fight cancers 
  • It can be used as a facial moisturizer for dry skin

Pure Indian Foods is based out of Princeton, NJ and they are a fifth-generation family-owned ghee business since 1889. They make 100% pure organic USDA certified ghee from grass-fed, & pasture raised cows. All of their products are made in small batches right in NJ. They are also non-GMO.

Here's the yummy Chicken Tikka Masala recipe we made using Turmeric Superghee and it came out delicious! Try not to get it on your hands, my fingers are now stained yellow because of the Turmeric:
