    Unfortunately, it's not.
    The only Indian Grocery I know of one on the Gold Coast http://spiceworld.net.au/
    40mins away and $11.95 is the cheapest one

    what do you make with this?

    •  

      Its clarified butter. Can be used instead of cooking oil to give that rich taste. Kinda like how duck fat is used for frying potatoes. Good source of calcium too.

      •  

        Not sure if you like to replace cooking oil with Ghee, Ghee has strong smell when heated on pan etc.

        • +2 votes

          yes you are right, not a replacement of cooking oil but probably of butter. Used for making sweets, enhances the taste of Veg Dishes etc.

      In the recently posted microwave popcorn deal, someone said they used this and popcorn kernals to make healthier quick popcorn (microwave popcorn is very bad for you)

        Haha, add some saturated fat to the already purportedly "bad for you" microwave popcorn to make it 'healthier'. The kind of things armchair nutrition experts come up with always cracks me up.

          I think he means to use "untreated popping corn + ghee" rather than adding it to microwave corn.

            @GordonR:

            You are probably correct, I seemed to have misunderstood the previous post.

            I suppose it's still corn kernels + saturated fat (which might have been some other nasty chemicals). I suppose it's the question of which one of the two is worse off (fat vs chemicals).

            I suppose point might still be that one could not make anything "healthier" by adding saturated fats to it.

              @aussieolfaction: There is no way that popping corn in ghee could be as bad for you as either microwave or cinema popcorn, apparrently a small popcorn has as much calories as over 2 roast dinners

        A report from the FDA indicates that a chemical coating used in microwave popcorn bags breaks down when heated into a substance called perfluorooctanoic (PFOA). The Environmental Protection Agency has identified PFOA as a “likely carcinogen.”

      Ghee and rice is usually a kids first solid food. Meant to be healthier than other oils. I found that you can make home remedies with it as well…

    Ghee thanks…

    Traditionally GHEE was made at home in Indian families and my wife still does. Just buy unsalted butter from the supermarket and heat it up to boiling point. It separates ghee from cheesy residue that can be filtered out before the ghee sets again. Feel the freshness and purity!

      Ghee is usually fermented. The butter they use to clarify is churned from yogurt and you are left with lassi as a byproduct. You can clarify regular butter but you won't get the same sour taste.

        you are left with lassi as a byproduct.

        what ??

      •  

        Yeah, nah, that's not how it works. Sour cream maybe. Yoghurt rather not.

          Yeah you are right, I over simplified it to get the point across. Much like the Ghee let me clarify.

          Which was Ghee being made from butter that is made from a cultured milk and not just regular butter so you could clarify butter at home and get something that resembles Ghee and cooks like Ghee (which is fine) it will be missing the flavours you get from the culture and fermentation of the milk so homemade from supermarket butter and this aren't 1 to 1 comparable.

          With all that out of the way this Amul Ghee doesn't taste that great anyway.

      I have tried making ghee that way. It tastes much better than this Amul shit. Amul used to be good a few years ago.

    •  

      Which butter do you use?

    • +1 vote

      How much butter do you need to yield 1 litre of product?

    •  

      A much better bargain way of making Ghee is from discounted cream.

      Our IGA once had 300ml tubs of cream that expired the next day reduced to 9 cents each. Churn the cream into butter, you get close to 100g from each 300ml tub, then straight into the wok to clarify.

      The pleasant nutty flavour comes from the Maillard reaction of the proteins and milk sugar as they heat up - before you skim the residues off.

      If you have a suitable thermometer you can replicate your favourite flavour to the point every time. The thermometer helps to maximise good and avoid burnt flavours. Otherwise just go slow and stop before the colour goes too dark.

    on the cans I got

    what do you do with so many cans
    (I'm assuming you bought more than two)

    It separates ghee from cheesy residue that can be filtered out before the ghee sets again.

    does the cheesy residue end up in the bin, or is there something you can do with it?

    Seems like the deal price is rising @ Woolies:

    Nov 18: $7.5 [VIC] 1/2 Price Amul Ghee 1L for $7.50 @ Woolworths Braybrook
    Feb 19: $9 [NSW] Amul Ghee for $9 @ Woolworths Parramatta

    and now $9.90

  •  

    It's this price or less since last 6 months. Woolies started this sale around the Indian festival of Diwali last year.

  •  

    Not for WA. Update the title pls.

    •  

      Maybe not all stores in WA, but my local shows it at that price, I could order for pick-up or delivery.

  •  

    Good work system

    To remind people this is made from Buffalo milk. Cows milk ghee is better, can be found in Indian grocery store like MKS in Dandenong, it comes in yellow coloured tin.
