The nuttier of our two ghees is what is generally known as gawa ghee in Bengal. We have paired it in the most classic way: with a spoonful of khichuri.

For the popular sweet-snack, we selected the Bangalee gawa ghee from Medinipur, supremely nutty with just the right amount of caramel. We did not soak the goja, speckled with kalo jeere and fried in Medinipur Ghee, in the syrup; rather generously sprinkled with sugar featuring our ground cinnamon. 

about the ghee

Ghee from Medinipur is a darker variety of ghee, different from our Darjeeling ghee. While both of them are technically gawa (made from cow milk), the one from Medinipur is what would be traditionally defined as gawa ghee in Bengali households. It is nuttier and has more caramel notes than its counterpart from Kalimpong, owing to its longer heating time.
