Reminds me a bit of the old Solvite adhesive pads on the telly back in the 80's.

You held a 36" CRT television weight maybe 90kg to your wall using just Solvite adhesive pads ?  Wow, those pads (and your walls) must have been something special :)

Ha ha!  I was actually thinking of this one Phil, 1979.

D@mn :  you wrote "Solvite ads", and I read "Solvite pads" -- that might explain the confusion !

P.S. "Bit before your time perhaps?" -- On our first television (9". black and white, giant liquid-paraffin-filled magnifying lens in front so that you could see it from all of 6' away), there /were/ no advertisements, for Solvite or anything else -- ITV had yet to be invented, and the most exciting part of the day was at the very end, when you watched for what seemed like an eternity, waiting for the little spot in the middle of the screen to finally disappear ...

Veg based ghee is not so good for are little friends the Orangutan... its all to do with palm oil and the destruction of forests! If you do use it, get the cows milk more expensive type. Our lass pointed this out to me. Message researched and taken on board.

Ive been making my own butter ghee of late. No cheesyness about it whatsoever.
I think you can call it clarified butter as well. Dead simple to do but a bit time consuming. I just put some good quality butter in a saucepan, melt it, stick a couple of bay leaves in it, and separate the solids out. Discard them and then sieve the liquid through a piece of muslin cloth. Cheap butter has a high level of solids and therefore a low "yield" of ghee. I use Lurpack.
The Balti base I am developing has a high dairy content so I decided to go with the flow and use butter ghee instead of veg oil. It works well. I will post the recipe soon

Regards

Ahh thats interesting DP. I must say I have only tried Asdas own brand and assumed (wrongly) that was why it was cheap. Ill have to try the Tesco brand next time
