Want To Know More About Ghee?
Ghee is good for ALL doshas in moderation. For those with excess #kapha, minimal use is recommended. In recipes, use plenty of ghee when cooking for a person with symptoms of aggravated vata or pitta, less ghee if kapha is aggravated.
Use ghee as you would normally use #butter or any oil. The taste may seem unusual at first ~ maybe a distant cousin of butter. Your palate quickly adjusts, and soon you forget why you ever found butter interesting!
White Basmati rice with ghee and salt, dahl (split mung beans), purple cabbage and creamy pumpkin! Remember to keep an appropriate balance of augmenting and extractive foods in your meals. There should be about 60% augmenting and 40% extractive on your plate! In this meal, the rice and pumpkin are augmenting, while the beans and cabbage are extractive.
More Ghee Tips!
Do not use salted or commercial butter when making ghee. Although you CAN find ghee at your local health food store, you might find it more rewarding and less expensive to make at home.
It is kept in the refrigerated section in stores by law, but should be kept at ROOM TEMPERATURE in a cupboard at home.
It improves with age!
Be careful not to contaminate it with wet utensils, food, or dirty fingers. This will lead to mold.
