Ayurveda/Dairy and meat


Dear Dr. Dehal,

As I understand, milk products and meat should not be consumed together (i.e. chicken with milk, fish with milk, chicken with cheese...).
What about ghee and butter? Can either or both of these be consumed with fish or chicken, or any other meat?

I would also like to ask about fruits with non-fruit foods. Fruits are usually recommended to be eaten separately from other foods. What about raisins, or figs? Can they be combined safely and with benefit with other foods? (i.e. sweet potato kheer made with raisins...)

Thank you again for your knowledge and expertise, and all best wishes to you.


Ghee can be consumed with meat,fist and chicken.But to be very frank i am doubtful about butter.Butter can be taken with meat and chicken but not with fish.
Fresh fruits should not be taken with other food items as it hinders digestion of food and so cause gas in the abdomen.But dried fruits like raisins etc can be taken with other food.Puddings with figs and current is a good example of this.
