What is good about Ghee rice recipe?

Not only the ghee recipe is easy to cook a dish it is good for health too. Take a look.

Ingredient 1: Rice: There are some definite pros for rice. Rice is a good source of complex carbohydrates, which is an essential source of energy for our body. Rice is low in fiber and therefore easy to digest and a staple option for people suffering from digestive weakness and acidity.

Ingredient 2: Ghee: Milkio Grass fed cow ghee is high in its fat levels and if consumed in moderation it is healthy.  Grass fed Milkio Ghee is packed with Conjugated Linoleic acid (CLA) which offers lots of health benefits. Ghee is also loaded with butyrate which is good for healthy colon management.

Fats in ghee reduces the pace of digestion process. As ghee contains plenty of fats, so having it with rice cuts the speed of digestion of the meal and Ghee works as a filler food.

However, the ghee rice recipe is not regularly recommended for diabetics, heart patients and obese patient. Occasionally, if someone wants to have ghee rice in food menu, moderate use of ghee and strict portion control is recommended.

Falafel

Falafel is deep fried veggie balls and it is prepared by using veggies like chickpeas and fava beans. It is an easy to prepare traditional Egyptian as well as Middle Eastern food. Usually it is served in Pita, which works as a pocket type wrapper for the balls. In UAE sometimes Falafel is served with flatbread called as taboon. In Middle East it is also known as Ta’amia. It is one of the most popular side dishes in UAE, which you can easily make in your kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • Mixed beans: 1 x 400 g tin

  • Allspice : 1 heaped teaspoon
  • Plain flour: 1 heaped tablespoon
  • Fresh coriander leaves: 1 bunch
  • Parsley: 1 bunch
  • Cumin powder: 3-4 tablespoon

Cooking Method

  • Place all the beans and half of the chickpeas into a food processor and keep on whizzing until the mix gets smooth: however take care of the load of your processor.
  • Now you can add parsley, coriander leaves, salt, hot pepper, garlic, cumin, and spring onions and whiz again, until all ingredients get well combined.
  • Finally, add the remaining chickpeas, fresh herbs, and pulse until thy get completely chopped and well combined, but not totally mashed – the mixture need to be clumpy with chickpeas.
  • Dash in the baking powder and 4 tablespoons of flour and pulse. Add sufficient bulgur or flour so that the dough can be formed in small balls and doesn’t stick to hands.
  • Put all the falafel balls into a bowl and place in a refrigerator, covered, for 3-4 hours.

  • Serve Falafel balls with tahini sauce (Tahini is an oily paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is widely available in UAE grocery markets.), grilled flatbreads, and plenty of salad.

You may garnish falafel in authentic Israeli style also: use these condiments: Harissa hot sauce, pickled turnip, and sauerkraut.

Homemade chocolate recipe with Milkio Ghee

Ingredients:

  • 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

 Directions

  • 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!
