Pure Indian Foods is ​a company created by the 5th generation ghee makers.  To learn more about the products and the company's philosophy, please listen to my interview with Sandeep Agarwal

Ghee is a healthy, shelf-stable alternative to butter or other cooking oils that Leslie Cerier mentioned in her interview. Since it has a high smoke point, ghee is one of the best fats you can try for baking and high heat cooking. 

The product I usually have on hand in my kitchen is this 100% organic grass-fed ghee.​
