I found alternative to homemade ghee . I never purchased store brought ghee. Plus not able to make efforts from the fresh cream . I thought of some easily available alternative, Didn’t exploring much brought GRB ghee and never looked back for trying some other brands. It is simply amazing with authentic homemade ghee taste. Used in hot rice and dal ‘MIND BLOWING’ experience , It is heavenly aromatic and tastes awesome.
Iam using it with Roti, Pongal , Temperings and making sweets with GRB ghee .
The sweets with GRB ghee literally melts in the mouth. They taste awesome. I particularly like to pour hot ghee on top of sweet pongal with lots of nuts . That is my favourite.
It is available from 100 ml to 1 litre.
They are also available in pouches with a reasonable price and trial purpose. I bought 200 ml for Rs 137, Pretty much affordable.
