Is Vanaspati ghee safe?

Vanaspati ghee, as the name mentions is a ghee, yet it is made via partial hydrogenation process using Nickel catalyst and is used as an alternative of Desi ghee (Butter ghee), since butter ghee is relatively expensive.

My question is, since vanaspati ghee is made via implication of hydrogenation process, is it safe?

In my opinion you'd be better of buying some butter and then clarify it yourself. You don't even need a cooker, just put the butter in a glass jar, leave it out in the sun or on a radiator, anything that will melt the butter, don't stir it, wait til it separates, then pour it gently through a coffee filter.

Sounds like it's vegetable ghee, ie. margarine. That's why I've stopped eating at curry houses.

Price of butter ghee has increased in UK 50% in the past few months.
