Healthy Indian Cuisine with Alisha: Ghee
Ghee is clarified butter and it is popularly known as a healthy cooking ingredient from India. Today, Ghee is used because it can improve heart health, reduce inflammation, lubricate joints, banish arthritis stiffness and balance weight gain.
Ghee contains less dairy proteins than regular butter. This makes it ideal for those who do not tolerate dairy products that well. Same goes for folks who have sensitivity to dairy proteins such as lactose and casein.
