Jharna Ghee is one thing a Bengali will never miss to pick leaving Kolkata. A dollop of Jharna ghee, food of the gods, in your daal-bhaat (dal-chawal) is a reminder of home. Regular trips to the town market are made to buy Jharna ghee, sold in large and small plastic bottles. It is an integral component of Bengali cuisine as no Moong Dal would be complete without a drizzle of Jharna Ghee or no Niramish tarkari (vegetable curry) wouldn’t taste good without a fresh dose of ground garam masala and a dash of Jharna Ghee. Jharna Ghee is also used in restaurants catering Bengali food.
