What is a2 desi gir cow ghee
Indian Gir cows or Indian Malnad cows produce milk known as A2 Cow milk. This milk contains A2 beta-casein protein. The ghee from churning the butter derived from the curd made from this milk is called A2Cow Ghee.
The Golden Medicine
Locally bred cows (Desi cows) have provided the milk for bilona ghee, a consumption our ancestors practiced. Ayurveda recognizes Desi Ghee or Bilona Ghee as the “Golden Medicine.” It is also referred to as clarified butter.
Factors to produce high quality Ghee
Various factors, such as quality grass intake, weather conditions, the health of the cows, and sound pollution, play a significant role in producing high-quality ghee. It takes about 20-25 liters of milk to produce 1 liter of ghee
Bilona Method of preparing a2 desi gir cow ghee
- Milk is boiled and brought down to room temperature. Then add a small quantity of curd and allow it to set all night
- The set curd is then churned using a wooden churner called Bilona. Churning the milk in two motions – Clockwise and Anti-Clockwise – is the correct way of churning. This is a slightly lengthy process. Curds get separated from buttermilk to form Butter.
- Place the churned butter in a stainless steel vessel and place it on gas stove. Stir it for a while on medium flame until the water content evaporates. Once the butter starts becoming clear and there is a visible layer of solids at the bottom of the vessel the ghee is almost ready. The Ghee will start emitting a peculiar aroma once it is ready.
- Finally, strain this golden-colored liquid ghee through a strainer and store it in tightly lidded jars. It is crucial to pour the ghee into a dry jar, as even a small amount of moisture can spoil it. Ghee does not require refrigeration.
