  1. Yumm..healthy butter dear !!
    I am preparing white butter in a same way, but I am adding cold water/ice in it, so makhan become easily ooze out from water.....I love the idea of adding water in cream, never used water into malai before in it..

    1. Thank you jolly for stopping at my place... And yeah I use cold water/ice only in summer because I normally use frozen malai so even after 4 hours it will be cold enough to extract butter easily .but yes in summer I need to use ice cubes. :)
