Ghee, the Indian version of clarified butter, is a rich, golden oil with a nutty flavor. Like clarified butter, ghee has a higher smoking point than whole butter, which makes it great for sautéing. But unlike clarified butter, which has a neutral flavor, ghee (pronounced with a hard “g”) adds its own delicious, slightly caramelized flavor to foods. (The flavor comes from toasting the milk solids before they’re removed from the butter.)
