Ghee is a class of clarified butter that is originated in ancient India and it is used commonly in South Asian cuisines, traditional medicine and religious rituals. One most important class of ghee is Indian Cow ghee. Lord Krishna was said to be very fond of Indian cow ghee as a young child.
It has a huge importance in Vedas. According to yogic philosophy, food is recognized as the great entity of life as it is responsible for the growth of the body. It is hence called Brahman (God) and rice mixed with Indian Cow Ghee is called Soma juice and it is described as the diet of god. So this food is considered sacred itself.
Ghee has a very bright history and the Vedas, Ayurvedic Samahitas, and Yoga Texts contain frequent references to Indian cow ghee in many places for several purposes such as maintaining health, promoting healing and ceremonial uses. It is likely that humans have been making Indian cow ghee since milk became a part of diet. In history, it was believed that one who had ample stocks of ghee was said to possess liquid gold.
At Klimom, we prepare ghee in the traditional ayurvedic style from curd and not from milk fats.
To make ghee obtain raw Indian Cow milk, then boil it, let it cool to about 42-43 degree Celsius and add curd. Let it settle for about 12-14 hours. Curd is then churned using ancient methods to obtain clarified butter. Place one or two bars of unsalted clarified butter in a saucepan till the time it boils; then lower the heat. When the white foam of milk solids accumulated at the top begins to collapse and thicken, start skimming it off from there. Do not disturb the bottom of the pan. As the butter continues to boil, carefully observe the oily portion till it becomes clear, and watch the sediment on the bottom till it becomes golden brown.
When all the water is evaporated, the bubbling sound will stop. When only the clear oil and golden sediment remain the ghee is ready. Remove it from the heat and let it sit for a moment. Pour the ghee off into a container (not plastic- as it may melt). It doesn’t need to be in fridge but do keep it away from moisture.
