Inspired by Farmville!

So I was doing a google image search earlier, to ascertain the difference between the colors of ghee from buffalo's milk and ghee from cow's milk. And this image in the search results caught my attention...



Following the link given on the page, I discovered that the image was from the website of a sole-proprietorship export firm in Perundurai, Tamil Nadu, India. And guess what! The name of this firm is "Farmvillez"! (http://www.farmvillez.in/) Looks like somebody's been taking their Farmville quite seriously! :D :D :D

Anyway, the above image is not of ghee. It is of butter -- yellow butter, from cow's milk, and white butter, from buffalo's milk. (Remember I explained in my recipe for making ghee at home that we first get the butter?) Well, I didn't get that deep shade of yellow when I applied my recipe to a batch of cow's milk-cream, but it definitely was yellower than buffalo butter. This is what I got...



Pretty cool, huh? And yes, I HAVE become a maestro at making homemade ghee now! :D Gone are the days when I couldn't cook! Will soon be sharing some more neat recipes here... stay tuned!

Oh boy. The last thing you'd want now is the animal husbandry version of Farmville. Next thing you know people are jumping up in the middle of dinner with a cry of 'Oh, I have knead the Velvet Udders of my Pink Buffalo from Australia!' and lob virtual globs of purple yogurt at each other on Fakebook.

Bengalis love ghee made from pure cow's milk. While we've never made ghee from cow's milk at home, mainly I guess because the milk we get is a mix of cow and buffalo, the cow's milk ghee we purchase from Bong provisions shops is a shade of brown.

Purple yogurt? You're insane!

And that's such a disgusting shade of brown! Yuck!

You probably get synthetic milk at home dude... you buy the packaged milk na!

Btw, cow milk is a lot cheaper than buffalo milk, so it doesn't really make sense to dilute it with a more expensive substance.

Haah! Don't try to pass off the comment time as an excuse for your insanity! You're equally nonsensical 24 by 7!

Haww. You've never tasted my kinda ghee and you're saying it's disgusting. You are disgusting. And so is your litti and your baati and your choorma. As you can see, mujhe jhagda karna hai. Phone karun please?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

The "disgusting" was for the color, not the ghee. I like being disgusting though. Thanks, I'll take it as a compliment! :D

One of these days, I'm going to try my hand at making baati... will post pics here when I get the hang of making them to perfection... so that you can turn green with jealousy! :D :D :D

Btw, how come you ALWAYS think of calling me when I'm busy either making b'fast or lunch? Some sense of timing dude! :D Let's fight later in the evening sometime if you're free... my student is supposed to arrive in a few minutes.

Choorma by Chicky, waiting to see how the Baati crumbles :-)

The colour of the butter from different sources is quite distinct! Damn cool...

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@OB: Keep waiting dude! :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Shilpa: Hai na... I was quite amazed too. I didn't expect them to be so distinct.
