Many of us enjoy eating chapati or roti with a dab of clarified butter or ghee. In addition to softening the rotis, it also keeps it from becoming dry and flaky. But do experts advise ghee to be added to rotis? If so, by how much? Aanchal Sogani, a licenced nutritionist, provides the answers to these queries. She recently posted information on this well-liked combination on Instagram. The glycemic index of chapati is lowered by ghee. For foods containing carbs, there is a rating system called the glycemic index (GI). It demonstrates how rapidly ingesting various foods alters your blood sugar (glucose) level.

1. Ghee makes you feel more satisfied. You won't need to later in the day indulge on more fattening meals.

2. Ghee contains fat-soluble vitamins that help people lose weight. Ghee is essential for maintaining good cholesterol levels and hormone balance.

3. Due to its high heat point, ghee doesn't generate free radicals that can harm cell function.


Rujuta Diwekar, a well-known dietician, wrote on Instagram, "Cooking in ghee and adding it to dals, rice, bhakri, bhatis, and chapatis is a must. Essential fatty acids are present, and it facilitates the absorption of vitamin D, A, and E. It improves taste as well. 

According to nutritionist and food coach Anupama Menon, ghee can be consumed first thing in the morning or even mixed with rotis or rice. It can be used in cooking because it has a high smoking point and gives dals and desserts a distinctive flavour. Most of it is reasonably priced, yet it transmits an incredible level of luxurious taste. But ghee is frequently avoided because we believe it to be high in calories, which it is, but so are the other cooking oils. Although it is a beneficial supplement to the fats consumed on a regular basis, it must be utilised properly and in moderation, according to Menon.
