Have you ever thought why the Indian / Desi Cow has a sacred place in the Hindu religion and culture. It is quite literally worshipped as goddess Kamdhenu; the cow of plenty.
India is the world’s largest producer of milk. These cows have been the most crucial backbone of India’s rural economy. Low on maintenance costs, their yield has been a source of nutrition for otherwise impoverished families.
The Desi Cows (Bos Indicus Cattle), sometimes known as "humped cattle" , are a type of domestic cattle originating in South East Asia, particularly the Indian sub-continent. They are characterised by a fatty hump on their shoulders, drooping ears and a large dewlap.
They are highly adapted to high temperatures and are farmed throughout the tropical countries. There are 37 pure cattle breeds in India, the most common being the Gir cow which comes from Gujarat.
The Indian (Desi) cow is the only species of cow on the planet which has a hump along its backbone. The hump has a specific vein called the ‘Surya Ketu Nadi’, which absorbs the energy from the sun and the moon.
The solar rays produce golden salts in her blood and are present in the products produced (milk, ghee, curd, butter), thus giving its golden colour. The other cow by-products (eg. Dung, urine) have medicinal benefits as well, acting as naturally producing manure, pesticide and insecticide.
The milk of the Desi cow is a rich source of A2 protein, Vitamin A, D, E, K and Omega3 fatty acids which are rarely found in the same amount in any other food.
Pure A2 cow ghee is not just an accompaniment, but a necessity in most Indian households. It is a rich source of Omega-3 and other nutrients like vitamins, minerals, protein, iron, calcium. Therefore, it is considered the purest of all foods and is a healthier option as compared to butter or oil.
The Joys of Watangi Desi Cow Ghee is prepared specifically from the milk of the free range Gir Cows. The Gir cows feed on the green grass meadows of Watangi, a beautiful village located on the Maharashtra – Goa border close to Amboli Ghat.
We follow the ancient ‘bilona’ process of making ghee which involves curdling milk and hand churning it until the milk solids separate. 1 kg of ghee is obtained from 23 litres of milk.
The nutritional value of pure desi cow ghee prepared with the 'bilona' process exceeds the benefits of other substances such as butter or oil.
