One must wonder that if mixing ghee and honey becomes poison then why are they used while making Panchamrit? Panchamrit is a mixture of five foods that is used to do Abhishek during puja and is later served as prasad. Mainly, milk, curd, honey, ghee and sugar are used to make it. The reason why Panchamrit doesn’t turn toxic is because ghee and honey aren’t mixed in equal proportions. Also, Panchamrit is offered as a prasad and is consumed in very small quantities, usually, just 1 tsp is consumed which causes almost no harm to the body.

The benefits offered by honey need no introduction. Also known as clarified butter, ghee is a storehouse of nutrients like milk proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, healthy fats, vitamin A and butyric acid which helps in boosting our overall health. The addition of just a spoonful of desi ghee to dals, curries, sabzi and even khichdi can single-handedly spruce up their flavours.

One can even reduce the high glycemic index of rice and chapati by adding a dollop of ghee. Ghee is not just beneficial for diabetics but also acts as a natural laxative that can quickly cure constipation.
