Ghee is used regularly in many Indian recipes and is an essential part of many Hindu religious ceremonies. Recently, ghee has also gained a large fan base among the foodie population. I personally use ghee instead of vegetable oil in many different recipes...not just Indian food.

Ghee is basically clarified butter which is made by gently simmering unsalted butter until all the water has evaporated and the proteins have separated. This process gives the resulting product a very high smoking point, around 250 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes ghee perfect for tempering spices and also for frying if you so desire.

Ghee can be purchased from most Indian grocery stores and also other specialty stores however, making it at home will save you some money and also ensure your ghee is fresh and pure (vegetable oil is sometimes found in low quality ghee). So, without further digression, here is the priceless recipe.
