Home made Ghee

Level: Easy
Cooking Time: 1 hour

unsalted butter

Step 1:

Take a heavy bottom pan and melt the butter sticks in a medium flame

Step 2:
Once the butter has melted completly, lower the flame and leave the pan undisturbed for approximatlely 35 minutes. Do not cover and also the flame should be low
A froth will be formed on top.There will be crackling sounds as well

Step 3:
After 35 minutes, gently stir to find out if the solidified milk has settled down.
You should be able to see the bottom of the pan clearly and the ghee will be golden in color.

Step 4:
Once the milk solids has settled down, switch of the flame immediately.Otherwise the ghee will get burnt.

Leave it uncovered for some more time to cool down and transfer the clear ghee to a clean vessel. The milk solids would have settled at the bottom
You can also use a sieve to filter the milk solids

Need notrfrigerate. Can be stored at room tempature

Slightly heat and melt the ghee before serving (for rice dishes)
