Ghee: Healthy and Flavorful Cooking Fat

Did you know that you can use ghee in everyday cooking?

Ghee is a clarified butter popularly known as a healthy cooking ingredient from India. A spoonful of Ghee added to every dish will leave a remarkable taste on your palate.

You can use ghee as your primary cooking fat because it is incredibly versatile. It can be used for both cooking and baking.

Here are some advantages of cooking and baking using Ghee


Ghee has a smoking temperature of about 450 degrees Fahrenheit (butter is 350 degrees). You can sauté without worrying about burning the taste.

Pro-tip: It’s perfect for sautéing vegetables.


Ghee can be a substitute for butter in any recipe. It is favorable to use ghee because it adds a distinctive and stronger nutty flavor.


Ghee’s high smoke point makes it suitable for roasting without the risk of destroying important nutrients that it contains. Mix it with herbs and spices and rub it on the meat before roasting. Hmm… I can smell it!


High smoke point is an advantage of ghee when frying. Try scrambled eggs. It won’t burn easily and adds a creamier aftertaste.

Want to add this incredible ingredient to your kitchen shelf? Lotus has its own brand of Ghee! This exclusive ghee is the same product used in our fine Indian cuisine at Lotus. We make it ourselves from local organic butter.

Our Indian grocery store, Lotus Market next to our Indian restaurant has our very own Lotus Organic Ghee. It is available in three convenient sizes: 8 oz, 12 oz, and 16 oz. Contact Lotus Market for your queries at 415 526 3673.
