General Guidelines for Cooking with Ghee

Share on social media
  • Ghee’s smoke point is 485°F and it is ideal base oil for boiling, sautéing, baking, roasting, and pan-frying (even deep-frying, although I don’t recommend it).
  • Melt the ghee on medium-low heat to fry spices, flatbreads, or omelets or to sauté vegetables. Protect it from smoking and burning, as burned ghee is very unhealthy and should be discarded.
  • Never reuse ghee (or any oil!) left after cooking. Once the ghee is heated beyond its smoke point, it oxidizes and its fats begin to decompose, forming toxic compounds.
  • Anyone with heart, liver, or kidney imbalance should consult a medical professional before using ghee.
  • Discard rancid ghee (whitish in color).

Yes, you may spread it on toast!
