These days, we’re lucky enough to have the chance to get our hands on food products that are used in cuisine eaten all over the world.
And with the internet to help us, not only can we often buy these products online, it’s also so easy to find recipes that help us recreate certain styles of food in our kitchens.
Look for curry recipes online and you might find some of them involve something called ghee. In fact, if you’ve eaten Indian food in the past, you may well have come across this culinary ingredient.
Ghee can be a useful type of fat to have around in the kitchen when it comes to adding an authentic touch to Indian dishes you might want to make, like a tasty curry!
It’s a type of clarified butter that is much-used in that part of the world when people are preparing various dishes.
Ghee, which is sometimes made in spice-flavoured varieties, is essentially a clear butter which the milk solids have been taken out of, and is useful for when you want to fry, as a result of its high smoking point.
Keeping for longer than butter without turning rancid, ghee can be made from butter produced from the milk of different types of animal, such as cow’s milk.
Other ingredients that can be helpful to have to hand when it comes to creating curries include chickpeas, an ingredient which contains a range of nutrients and can help provide you with protein, something which is important for healthy living.
Lentils are also a curry ingredient that can give you protein - and can be a way to get protein if you are vegetarian or vegan, for example (because it is made from milk, ghee is not vegan, of course).
There are also a range of spices that can be included in a curry, all of which will provide slightly different qualities to the eventual dish that you create.
Have fun looking for types of curry to try, and treat yourself!
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
