So first things first, what is ghee? Ghee is a clarified type of butter and it is a good alternative to cooking oil. It is often used in the ayurvedic, indian and far eastern kitchen. Ghee is the butterfat which is left over after the water and milk solids have separated from the butter. The absence of milk solids makes it easy to cook on high temperature, due to the higher smoke point of ghee versus other cooking oils. The process of splitting the water and milk solids form the butterfat makes ghee even dairy free.
