A2 cow ghee benefits are said to be many, especially for those who cannot digest the specific casein proteins present in A1 milk.

It's also good for heart health, improves bone health, and brain function, and is a good substitute for cooking oil.

The best A2 cow ghee in India is a debatable topic, but we’re privy to some of the top most brands of A2 cow ghee that surely whet the appetite as well as gently nourish us. Desi ghee is rich in omega-3s, and omega-6s, and has other healthy nutrients, too. Here are some recipes for everyone to try using lusciously delicious A2 cow’s ghee.

Nankhatai Biscuits

Many recipes utilize baking with ghee, such as this delicious recipe for nankhatai biscuits. Using organic maida, semolina, and decadent desi ghee, any home chef can make a freshly baked treat for their near and dear. The biscuits are flavoured with cardamom and topped with almond shavings. This recipe is a Tarla Dalal classic that’s perfect for cosy evenings with loved ones.


  • Plain flour
  • Besan, semolina, or maida
  • Baking Soda
  • Baking powder
  • A2 ghee
  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk


  • 2 deep bowls
  • A fine sieve or strainer
  • Whisk or electric whisk
  • Baking Tray


  1. Place a fine sieve or strainer in a deep bowl. Add in plain flour, about 200 grams. Add in 40 grams of gram flour or semolina, depending on your preferences.
  2. Add 1 tsp baking soda to neutralize the acid in the recipe, followed by 1 tsp baking powder.
  3. In another deep bowl, take some delicious desi ghee. It should have a semi-solid consistency with a grainy texture.
  4. Now combine the ghee and the powdered sugar. Whisk for 12 minutes or 6 minutes if you’re using an electric beater. Whisk until it’s white, smooth, and fluffy. This method is called creaming.
  5. Mix well to form a soft dough and add 1 to 2 tsp of milk. Mix it all and knead the dough. If the dough is too soft, keep it in the refrigerator.
  6. Now cut and roll the dough into biscuits and keep them on a baking tray at an equal distance. Remember that they expand upon baking so maintain some distance while placing them.

These biscuits are delicious and perfect for evening tea, as snacks, and as sweet treats for special evenings such as Diwali or New Year. They would also make wonderful gifts for your favourite next-door neighbour, or for a relative or colleague to sweeten their day.

Keto Ghee Recipe

One of the many A2 cow ghee benefits is that it’s suitable for those on a keto diet if mixed with vegetables like cauliflower or baingan. Check out this mouth-water recipe for turmeric cauliflower slabs, caramelized in ghee by Andrea, from ‘Buttered Veg’.


  • Four cups of cauliflower, sliced into ½ inch slabs.
  • Two tablespoons of ghee.
  • 1 tsp of turmeric (Haldi)
  • ½ tsp of red chilli powder
  • ½ tsp of Himalayan pink salt


  • A large non-stick skillet
  • A fork


  1. In the skillet, heat the ghee on medium heat. Add some turmeric and red chilli powder and stir for 30 seconds. That releases flavour and aroma.
  2. Add the cauliflower with salt and stir. Arrange the cauliflower in an even layer and let it brown. That should take around 5 minutes. Cover the skillet with a lid after adding a cup of water.
  3. After the first side has browned nicely, turn each piece of cauliflower with the fork. Cook until the second side has also become deliciously caramelized in rich and aromatic ghee.

The chef recommends one adds some tomato slices and sauteed greens to make a real meal out of this. The dish is perfect for any meal and would surely be a creamy and flavourful addition to the day.
