Homemade chocolate recipe with Milkio Ghee


  • 1 cup Milkio organic grass fed ghee.
  • 1/2 cup raw honey or you may use maple syrup
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence


  • Pour all the prescribed ingredients into a food processor.  Keep on Blending until all get mixed and evenly combined.
  • Place some plastic wrap or parchment paper in a loaf pan to cover the bottom and sides of the pan.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the loaf pan and cover with the plastic wrap (gently).
  • Press down or tilt to even out the thickness. I like mine about 1/2 inch thick. You can also spread the mixture onto some parchment paper on a cookie sheet or roasting pan and put the pan in the fridge. This avoids the plastic wrap and works just as well.
  • Place the loaf pan with the fudge into the freezer and let it set for about 20 min. Remove and slice into bite sized pieces.
  • I put these in a jar and store in the fridge. I like to store in the freezer for a cold chocolaty treat!

Gulab Jamun with Milkio Ghee

Gulab Jamun with Milkio Ghee

Milkio organic ghee is apt for cooking all types of sweets and desserts like Gulab Jamun: its high smoking point is the cause to call it a safe cooking oil.

Gulab jamun is a milk-solid-based sweet from the Indian subcontinent, and a type of mithai, popular in India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Maldives, and Bangladesh, as well as Myanmar.

For readers who have never heard of Gulab Jamun, it can be classified as a donut. Traditionally made with flour and powdered milk it was then fried and finally added to the sweet rose syrup. The South African Indian version differs in two respects, firstly the finger is similar in shape and secondly this recipe uses melted milk (Try my own Gulab Jamun with pure ghee recipe).


1. 3 cups sugar
2. 6 cups water
3. 1 tbsp. cardamom powder
4. 2 tbsps. Rose water
5. 3 cups powdered milk
6. 1 and a 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
7. 1 and a 1/2 tsp baking powder,
8. 1 cup heavy cream,
9. 1 cup Milkio cultured organic ghee for deep frying


  • Mix the water and sugar in a deep pan and boil till all the sugar is dissolved. Turn off the flame and add the cardamom powder and rose water.
  • Mix well and keep aside. Mix the powdered milk, all-purpose flour and baking powder well.
  • Add a little of the thickened cream at a time to them and mold to make a dough that is medium soft but not sticky.
  • Kept the rest of the cream aside.
  • Just add a little at a time until you reach the consistency of dough you are after.

The success of this dessert depends almost entirely on how well you mold the dough. Once the dough is ready, divide it into walnut sized balls and roll between slightly greased palms till smooth. Any cracks will show up even more lately and could lead to the ‘milk balls’ cracking as they are being fried… not desirable!

  • Take all the time you need over this step to get it right.
  • While making the balls, heat the Milkio grass fed ghee for deep frying in a wide pan on a low to medium flame. Fry the dumplings, stirring often to brown on all sides.
  • Do not cook on very high heat as the dumplings will burn on the outside and remain raw inside!
  • When cooked, drain (with a slotted spoon), remove the dumplings from the Milkio ghee and transfer it immediately into the sugar syrup.
  • Repeat above steps until all the dumplings are cooked and added to the syrup.
  • Allow the dumplings to soak in the syrup for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • At this point they can either be removed from the syrup and served or served with the syrup.
