Clarified butter, also called ghee, is pure butter fat that has had the oil and solids in the butter separated. It adds a rich buttery flavour to food and has a much higher smoke point than regular butter, which means it can go to a much higher temperature without burning. It also has a longer shelf life than butter.

It’s often used for grilling steaks or tofu, starting off curries and to make certain sauces.
