Pure ghee was one of the favorite ingredients of Bengali food. Ghee was eaten with hot rice.
But due to the lack of pure ghee, many people have given up that habit.
Elderly people said that the taste of ghee sung in their childhood was different.

But now the traders are mixing Dalda, refined oil, and butter oil with ghee for more profit. Besides, it is difficult to get pure milk.
Adulterated ghee is being made with adulterated milk. Experts said that if you take a good look at the bottle of ghee kept at home, you can see the lining of ghee under the jar.
The oily coating on the top this is not the case with pure ghee. It should be completely liquid.
How to identify pure ghee?
The first method –
Heat a teaspoon of ghee in a pot to see if the ghee is adulterated. If the ghee melts instantly and turns dark brown, then it is pure.
If it takes time to melt and turn light yellow, it is adulterated. When ghee is pure, it will melt in a few seconds.
If the ghee is adulterated, it will take a long time to melt.

If there are two layers, white clots on the bottom of the pot and oil on the top, then there is adulteration in the ghee.
This usually happens when there is a mixture of coconut oil.
