How to Fit Healthy Desi Ghee into Your Diet?

Pure desi ghee is known for being a healthy source of dietary fats that provides many health benefits when incorporated in a healthy diet and lifestyle. It has been celebrated for its therapeutic properties, rich taste and unique aroma for centuries. When added to any dish, cow ghee does not only enhance its flavour; it also makes it more satiating and satisfying for the appetite. Cow ghee is produced from cow’s milk butter, by simmering the butter which leaves us with this nutty flavoured and aromatic clarified form of butter.

Many people are eager to include ghee in their healthy diet, as a primary source of fat and energy. When consumed moderately, ghee provides nutritional components like fat-soluble vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A. This miracle can be found in a variety of delicious ghee recipes; here are some of them to help you get started and take advantage of ghee health benefits by incorporating it in your healthy diet.
