Easy Ghee Biscuits

Easy Ghee Biscuits

This easy ghee biscuit recipe has just three main ingredients, ghee, flour and sugar.  I didn’t even know they exsisted until a friendly market goer suggested we make them for our stall. What a fabulous suggestion this was.  These ghee bisucits are yummmy and go beautifully with a cup of tea.  If you are familiar with melting moments – they’re very similar.

After scouring the internet for recipes and trying a few, this one by Sharmila Kingsly, seems to be the easiest, and the tastiest.

Like anything, the quality of the ingredients for these ghee biscuits definitely make a big difference. I would also like to suggest, the attitude you hold, while you are making them, matters.   We suggest, like our ghee kitchen, having an intention of love and joy.  If you decide you want to toss in some kindness too, I am sure the person eating them would appreciate it.

Can I Substitute Ghee for Butter? The Benefits of Swapping.

Can I substitue ghee for butter

There are a lot of butter alternatives on the market these days. If you’re looking for a butter alternative, you may be wondering if you can substitute Ghee for Butter. The answer is yes and there are many benefits to swapping butter for ghee in your diet. Let’s take a look at how Ghee and butter differ, and some of the benefits of making the switch!

Ghee has no milk solids – this means that there is no lactose, casein, or anything else that can affect those with dairy intolerances. Butter, on the other hand, contains all of these things. So, if you’re looking for a dairy-free option, Ghee is the way to go as a butter substitute.

Another difference between Ghee and butter is shelf life. Ghee can be stored in the back of your cupboard for years without going bad. Butter, on the other hand, will only last for a few months in the fridge. So, if you’re looking for an ingredient that will last longer, Ghee is a great choice.

Ghee has a higher smoking point than butter. This means that it can be used for cooking at higher temperatures without burning. Butter will start to smoke and burn at lower temperatures, so it’s not the best choice for cooking.  In many recipes Ghee as a substitute for butter is the obvious choice.  Cake do become a little more denser but biscuits are yum!  Here’s our favourtie ghee biscuit recipe – they’re a little like your favourite melting moments.

Ghee is the healthier option compared with butter.

Studies have shown Ghee has been shown to reduce cholesterol and inflammation levels in the body while boosting immunity. In fact, there are a whole range of health benefits to ghee that butter does not have – here are the 10 health benefits of ghee if you want to dive deep.

There are many advantages to swapping out butter and using Ghee as the alternative in your diet. So, if you’re looking for a healthier, dairy-free option with a longer shelf life, Ghee is a perfect choice. Give it a try and see how you like it. You might just find that you never go back to butter again!

If you have any questions, feel free to email us and I’ll be happy to answer them.

Ghee Popcorn

A photo of popcorn cooked with our healthy, creamy butter alternative organic ghee.

If you’ve never had ghee popcorn you’re in for a real treat.  Besides the OMG taste, the best thing about cooking your popcorn in ghee is that you don’t have to add butter to it at the end of the process – meaning less washing up. With Winter upon us and the rise of Netflix and chill moments as we cower inside out of the cold, ghee popcorn is a healthy, snackable treat for both children and adults alike. It’s one of the easiest of ghee recipes – besides smearing it on a crumpet or dolloping it on cooked vegetables that is – and takes advantage of the high smoking point of ghee.

 

SERVES: 2
TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN

INGREDIENTS

1/3 cup of popping corn (dried corn kernels)

2 heaped tbsps of OMGhee

1 medium, heavy based saucepan (with a lid and preferably glass, but not essential – the glass that is – the lid is critical)

 

DIRECTIONS

Place the ghee in a heavy based saucepan.

Heat the ghee so it is very hot – and hot enough to pop the corn kernels.  How do you know when it is hot enough?  Take a single corn kernel and drop it in the ghee.  If the oil is hot enough it will begin to move, turn and then after a short while pop.

Place the remaining popcorn in the ghee.

Place the lid on your saucepan. This is super important unless you want popcorn all over your kitchen.

As the corn pops lift the saucepan from the stove, giving it a quick shake to move the kernels around and then place back on the heat. This technique lowers the chance of burning the corn and is especially valuable if you’ve overloaded the saucepan with too many kernels!

You know when the ghee popcorn is nearly ready with the  length of time between the pops becomes extended.  Once the corn has not popped for 10 seconds or so remove from the heat.  Some like to turn the heat off and let the remaining heat cook the last few.

Quickly pour out your corn into another bowl to avoid the heat ‘steaming’ the cooked popcorn.

Voila! you’re done.

Add salt and more ghee to taste.

Enjoy!

As Australians we often associate ghee with curry. Yes it’s great for curry because of it’s high smoking point, however, OMGhee also makes a great eating ghee.  So the most simplest ghee recipe is OMGhee on bread, your crumpets, use it to cook your pancakes in, eggs and steaks.  Remember, “You already know how to use it!”

Ghee Rice

Delicious ghee rice made with lashings of coriander and Indian black salt.

Ghee, Rice, and Coriander.  Simple.

One of the easiest and tastiest ways to experience ghee is on plain basmati rice.

This recipe calls for dashings of coriander and Indian black salt for additional health benefits.

This ghee rice recipe is quick, easy, and a great recipe to pull out when you can’t be bothered cooking.

 

SERVES: 2
TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN

 

INGREDIENTS
1/2 Cup Basmati Rice
2 tbs OMGhee
1 Cup Chopped Fresh Coriander
Indian Black Salt
Squeeze of Lemon Juice per Serve
#1 Cup of Joy

 

DIRECTIONS
Wash your rice 4 times until the water changes to be clear in colour. Then allow the rice to soak in clean filtered water for 10 mins.

Drain your rice and place it in a saucepan. Add boiling water to
1cm above the rice line. Turn the heat to high, place the lid on
the saucepan and boil for one minute or until froth appears.

Turn off the heat, leave the lid on and wait. It will be ready in
10 mins. Do not remove the lid.

While waiting for your rice, cut the coriander finely.

Take the rice off the stove, stir through the coriander and add dollops of OMGhee.

Serve into individual portions and squeeze lemon liberally over each serve and season with black salt.

Fun Fact:  Black salt isn’t really that black and it stinks of sulfur.  Don’t let this put you off though.  Like parmesan cheese, it tastes different than how it smells.  It adds a very distinct flavour profile to the dish without it becoming – salty.  Black salt is only ever used for enhancing dishes after they have been made. It is not suited to be added to dishes during the cooking process.

The Purest Ghee for a Keto Diet and Bullet Proof Coffee Recipe

purest ghee for keto diet bullet proof coffee

OMGhee is the only biodynamic, organic,  ghee in Australia making it the purest ghee for a keto diet and bullet proof coffee.

Ghee is considered to be one of the healthiest fats when eating a ketogenic diet.  The keto diet focuses on foods high in fat, low in carbohydrates and high in proteins.  Depending on where you read some have calorie restrictions others do not.  However, back to ghee.

The main reasons ghee is highly valued on a ketogenic (keto) diet is because eating pure ghee will not bump you out of a fast, it will curb your appetite and OMG it tastes so good.

Two more reasons is that Ghee is lactose free making it great for those with dairy intolerances and it has a high smoking point.  The high smoking point of ghee means is less likely to create free radical like other oils are prone to do when used for cooking in your keto diet.

Besides being an amazing cooking fat (I dare you to cook your steak in it, and eggs…. next level!) pure ghee is used in the widely popular bullet proof coffee.

Ghee and coffee – who would have thought it.  Having coffee on an empty stomach can cause acidity however, adding pure ghee in a keto bullet proof coffee is it has a soothing effect on the gut.

The addition of some spices makes it mmmmm – chef’s kiss – so so yummy.  Especially first thing in the morning.

There are lots of recipes for a bullet proof coffee despite its simplicity.  Here’s how we do it.

SERVES 1

TIME 2 mins

INGREDIENTS

Black coffee

1/2 tsp of clean, pure fat (OMGhee of course).  Some choose MTC oil, others coconut oil.  We believe the purest ghee for a keto diet is OMGhee because it is not only organic its also biodynamic.  The additional health benefits that come with ghee are a bonus plus it has plenty of other uses in the pantry as opposed to MCT oil.  You can up the amount of ghee overtime until you are more comfortable.

Any spices you may want to add. Our favourite is cinamon, nutmeg and a little cardomon to offset the coffee jitters.

METHOD

In a blender wizz your your black coffee with your pure OMGhee ghee until it resembles a latte.

Voila! You’re done.

Here’s a video of me making it here (including bloopers!)

Food is medicine, and while this is a simple and yum recipe it is tempting to swap out spices, change or remove the level of ghee or sugar for taste. Know that if you do, while it will still taste great, it won’t work as intended.
