I LOVE ghee as a special treat when I go out to for Indian food, but I don't cook with it - although it is available at my normal grocery store in the international foods aisle... There is just something about a nice warm piece of naan bread with melted ghee on it. YUM!!!
I get it from health food stores.I dont really know too much about other uses on how to use it.It is clarified butter and the buttermilk is taken out of it so it is pure butter fat and very rich.I guess try googling it and see what comes up.I will do it too as Im curious too.Cherie.I dont really fry either but need something to do stirfrys in etc but just a little.I also use cold pressed olive oil but I think if you cook with this the composition is changed and not as good as cold.
