What is bilona ghee and what are its benefits?

Bilona ghee is a type of clarified butter that is made from the milk of Cow or Buffalo. It is a popular ingredient in Indian cuisine and is thought to have a variety of health benefits. Some of the benefits of bilona ghee include improved digestion, better skin health, and stronger bones. Today we will be taking you through the process of making bilona ghee at home with Aumilk. 

Using makhan (clarified butter) and not cream

Bilona ghee is a clarified butter made from White Butter or Makhan. The steps of making bilona ghee are simple and easy. The end product is a golden, smooth, and rich butter that has a nutty flavor.

In India, it is common to use clarified butter, or makhan, in dishes rather than cream. This is because the cream can be quite heavy, whereas clarified butter has a lighter, more subtle flavor. 

Makhan also has a higher smoke point than regular butter, meaning it can be cooked at a higher temperature without burning. This makes it a better choice for dishes that require higher heat, such as curries.

Benefits of Bilona Ghee

The benefits of bilona ghee are numerous. Here are a few of them:

  1. Boosts immunity: Bilona ghee contains high amounts of antioxidants, which help boost the immune system and protect the body from diseases.

  2. Helps in digestion: Bilona ghee is known to improve digestion by increasing the secretion of digestive enzymes in the body.

  3. Enhances brain function: Bilona ghee is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain health and can improve memory and cognitive function.

  4. Promotes healthy skin: Bilona ghee is a rich source of vitamins A, D, E, and K, which help nourish the skin and keep it healthy and glowing.

  5. Supports weight loss: Contrary to popular belief, bilona ghee can actually aid in weight loss. It contains short-chain fatty acids that stimulate the body's metabolism and help burn fat.

  6. Reduces inflammation: Bilona ghee  contains anti-inflammatory compounds that help reduce inflammation in the body and alleviate pain.

Process of making Bilona Ghee

Bilona ghee is a type of clarified butter that is traditionally made in India. Here’s the traditional process of making makhan at home, which you can easily follow. 

It is made by slowly simmering butter until all the water has evaporated and the milk solids have separated out. The resulting product is a rich, golden-yellow clarified butter that has a nutty flavor. Bilona ghee is often used in Indian cooking and can be used in place of other oils or fats. 

Making bilona ghee at home is relatively simple, and only requires a few ingredients. 

  1. The most important ingredient is good-quality Bliona Churned White Butter. It is important to use butter that is made from grass-fed cows, as this will result in higher-quality ghee. 

  1. Additionally, it is important to use butter that has a high-fat content, as this will make it easier to clarify. Once you have your ingredients, the first step is to melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat.

  1. Once the butter has melted, you will need to simmer it for a period of time. The exact amount of time will vary depending on the amount of butter you are using, but it should be simmered for at least 30 minutes. During this time, you will need to occasionally skim off any foam that forms on the surface of the butter. 

  1. After the butter has simmered for the appropriate amount of time, it is then strained through a cheesecloth or other fine-mesh strainer. The resulting liquid is the bilona ghee.

  1.  This ghee can be stored in a jar or other container and must be kept in a cool and dry place away from direct heat or sunlight. 

While preparing with bilona ghee, it is important to keep in mind that it has a high smoke point. This means that it can be heated to a higher temperature before it begins to smoke. Bilona ghee is often used in place of other oils or fats in Indian cooking, as it can add a rich, nutty flavor to dishes. It can also be used in baking, or as a spread on toast or other brea. 

Final Words! 

Bilona ghee is a healthy and delicious alternative to other oils and fats in Indian cuisine.

Making it at home is a simple process, and the end result is a golden, smooth, and rich butter that has a nutty flavor. To ensure the highest quality ghee, it is important to use good-quality butter, such as A2 Milk from Aumilk.

Aumilk’s A2 Milk is produced by cows that naturally produce A2 beta-casein protein, which is easier to digest than the A1 beta-casein protein found in most cow's milk. By using A2 Milk in your bilona ghee recipe, you can ensure that your ghee is of the highest quality and packed with all the health benefits of traditional bilona ghee.
