  Clarified Butter Recipe-how to make Ghee

Cook Time :40-45  min
Total Time :40-45 min
Main Ingredient : Butter

Cuisine : Indian

    1. Take the butter from freezer and keep it outside for atleast 15mins and allow it to come to room temperature.
    2. Then heat the butter in a heavy bottomed kadai in medium low flame to avoid burning, keep stirring in between. The butter slowly melts down, keep stirring.
    3. Once it has melted down completely,allow the butter to boil. 
    4. There will a sound when this process happens.Once the sound ceases the butter becomes frothy.And within very few minutes the creamish yellow color turns to light brown ghee.
    5. The whole process takes 40 min approx on medium flame.PLEASE cook butter on LOW to MEDIUM flame and don't go away because it easily comes out from kadai when temperature is high.
    6. Now filter the ghee into the ghee container without the residue, can you see the dark brown residue being held off? 
    7. Homemade ghee is ready.
    8. Store them air tight container.
    • Do the whole process in low or medium low flame to avoid burning.  
    • Ghee can remain fresh at room temperature for 2 to 3 months.
    • You can use rock salt or curry leaves or drumstick leaves dipped in buttermilk and add it at the last stage.Adding drumstick leaves or curry leaves makes the ghee more flavourful and will help stay so for a longer time.(This tips is from my friend ,I have not tried this yet)
