Wait a minute! What the heck!!
Ghee is not oil. Original ghee is ghee. We have tolerated ‘naan bread’ but not ‘chai tea’ yet.
Well this is like ‘chai tea’ and don’t expect the lovers of pure ghee to get amused by this blatant mixing.
What is this all about!!! Well!!
I saw a news on a company which sells ‘original’ grass-fed ‘Ghee Oil’, facing backlash. From whom, of course from Indians!
Interestingly, according to the company’s website, the butter they make is made from the milk sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised cows in New Zealand and it also comes in different flavours — Original, California Garlic, Himalayan Pink Salt, and Madagascar Vanilla Bean.
A typical twitter reaction “Yes yes. Pls give me ghee oil on my naan bread with my chai tea”
I would share the sentiment, for I have made pure ghee from end to end. Used fresh, pure cow milk, extracted pure butter using the traditional and brilliant village made equipment and stored the boiled delicacy in glass jars for home use.
The cows ate grass from our compound and ghee is no oil!
