Including fresh ghee in your daily diet nourishes the body with essential nutrients and vitamins. Ghee is a rich source of healthy fats and vitamins E, D, and A, which are crucial for brain and heart health. Additionally, the Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids in ghee help reduce fat deposits. Some studies also suggest that ghee has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. It can boost immunity and increase levels of good cholesterol, helping to ward off diseases.

While ghee has excellent nutritional value, store-bought ghee may not be as healthy, often containing artificial colours and flavours. If you buy fresh milk, there's no need to purchase ghee from the store – it can be easily made at home in just 10 minutes using a pressure cooker. The video shared by vlogger Shipra Kesarwani on her social media page has garnered millions of views and likes.

Here's how to make homemade ghee:

Save the milk cream: Skim off the cream from the fresh milk every day and store it in an airtight container in the fridge.
Cook the cream: After a few days, place the collected cream in a pressure cooker with some water. Cook until you hear one whistle, then turn off the flame.
Cool and open: Let the steam release completely before opening the lid.
Add baking soda: Add a pinch of baking soda and turn on the flame. Stir continuously.
Separate the ghee: After some time, you'll notice the ghee separating from the water. Strain the ghee and store it in jars.
Enjoy your homemade ghee, packed with natural goodness!
