How does the ghee taste?
It tastes like the ghee.
The buttery content,
the delicious aroma,
the golden color,
the heavenly touch
is purity itself.
In the world of Indian cuisine
ghee is the ruling monarch-
if I time travel to our ancient times
of over five thousand years-
I would still find rishis and sages
performing fire rituals
mantras, aromatic and fiery
to the trees, rocks, rivers, mountains,
to all life forms-

Ghee is so unique that it amazes me that it’s also ancient. I picture the blessing of cooking with it today connecting with all the mindfulness and ritual all the way back through time. Mind blowing, and captured here!
I love that it is still the magical ingredient, through all the centuries. I so admire your ancient culture, which stretches back so far. Ours is a young one and we are too big for our boots.
My goodness but ghee is truly a magical ingredient in Indian cooking.
Here in the UK, Indian food has been placed as a traditional dish, alongside pizzas, as examples of English traditional meals! I’m not surprised
as I love the use of herbs, spices and vegetables in so many tasty dishes..
When you are on to a good thing stick to it. Gee, I expect Ghee will still be around in 5000 years time.
Wow that’s what I call culture You make me want to taste it now
How gently and satisfyingly this poem opens out to that wonderful conclusion.
What a wonderful celebration – the warmth oozed through
It is nice to find a food that is a staple, going back so many years.
