Side dishes that work well with Ghee rice

Interesting Facts:

  • Cow ghee is much healthier than any other type of ghee. It is fewer in calories than buffalo ghee.
  • The high smoking point of ghee means that it doesn’t oxidize easily and release free radicals, which are very harmful to your health. Most oils with a high smoking point like canola and soybean oil, on the other hand, are normally hydrogenated to add to their stability and therefore are quite bad for you.
  • The MCTS (medium-chain triglycerides) present in ghee are utilized very quickly by your body as energy and are only stored as ‘fat’ or in reserve if you over-consume in terms of calorific value.
