Ghee is the healthy fat, much needed by the body. It is also called, “nectar for the brain.” It fuels all the neurological functions that create our conscious and subconscious movements and decisions.
So though people are afraid of Ghee in their food with the mere thought of ungainly, blobs of lard, those latch onto your tummy, waist and hips. It is full of all the good important fatty acid, calcium as well as significant amount of vitamins A and D.
There is always a debate as to why Ghee is not included in the list of healthy fats. Ghee was not included merely because it was thought to be bad for people that were lacto intolerant.
However, there has been no such known instance and for its best benefits, it is important that Ghee be consumed without being heated to its smoking point.
Our Indian cuisine always has combined ghee on rotis, in our rice, on top of porridges made of bajra and wheat, to be mixed with khichidi, to give a tadka on dals. In all these forms, the ghee is served in its best form for digestion and perhaps the tastiest too.
A dash of Ghee goes a long way to promote good health as you can see. As goes for all fats, quantity should be small and limited. So do yourself a favour and enjoy the desi flavour of Ghee.
