Our Review Factors
Here’s what we set out to find- Is Baidyanath Premium Pure Cow Ghee something you should add to your pantry?
Ghee is known for the robust, rich aroma. Fresh and milky, or sour and off-putting? What was our initial observation? Does the aroma intensify when used during cooking? What about when we added dollops over dal rice?
Flavor – Does this ghee lend that appetizing, buttery richness? When added to a dish or smeared on some hot roti, does it help enhance the flavor or does it add nothing?
Freshness – Did the ghee taste fresh and milky? Or were there some rancid flavors that tasted unpleasent?

Baidyanath Premium Pure Cow Ghee – Detailed Review
How did we review this? How was our experience?
Our review consisted of five stages. Stage one was analyzing the labels and packaging. Stages two-five were cooking and tasting.
Stage 1- The ghee is packed in a carton and further in silver foil and must be transferred to a container. The ingredient list only mentions cow milk fat. It does not specify the fat content. We would have appreciated it if this piece of information was provided. The ghee has a yellow appearance and is partially melted, partially in blobs. It looks creamy but has a grainy (danedaar) texture. It emits the distinct desi ghee aroma. It’s fresh and doesn’t smell rancid.
Stage 2 – Cooking Dosas
We used the Cello Dosa Tawa and iD Dosa Batter to test the ghee. The dosa had browned well and was quite crisp. It took on the flavor of ghee very well, although subtly, and uplifted the flavor as we added another blob post-cooking.
Stage 3- Chapati + Jaggery + Ghee
Baidyanath ghee marries the flavor of jaggery quite well. Similarly, we also tried the ghee with plain chapati and found the nostalgic aroma of homemade ghee on our plates. Best of all, no bite feels greasy or undesirably oily. That said, the flavor is a bit subtle.
Stage 4- Steamed Rice
Rice was cooked with Baidyanath Premium Pure ghee and salt for flavor. Later, excess water was drained and a teaspoon was added when served. The rice had taken on the desi ghee flavor beautifully. We used Kohinoor Dubar Basmati rice for this step.
Stage 5- Khichdi
A teaspoon of Baidyanath ghee was added over Fortune Gujarati Khichdi. The characteristic ghee flavor was too subtle.
This was a common observation in all testing stages. The characteristic rich flavor of ghee is a little lower. For a richer, more intense flavor, you would need to add a larger quantity of ghee.
We have no complaints about the way this ghee smells or looks. In fact, it tastes fresh.
- The aroma is fresh and milky, just like desi ghee should be.
- It looks delectable.
- We liked the grainy texture.
- The ghee is fresh tasting and has that rich butteriness.
- This is priced competitively. A kilo of ghee is priced between Rs 450-650/-.
- You would require an additional container for storage.
- Ingredient details are incomplete.
- While the ghee is tasty, you require a larger quantity to impart a robust flavor. So the value for money aspect is a little low.
