This creamy, sweet, decadent side dish is made lactose free by using ghee or clarified butter (butter that has had all of the lactose and casein removed). You can purchase ghee or make your own at home. It adds a creamy and nutty taste to this dish. If you can eat lactose and casein, use regular butter and whole milk or cream.
