Home Made Ghee From Butter

Ghee is basically clarified butter. It is easier to make ghee at home rather than buying the expense brands from the store.

What you need to make home-made ghee:
  • Unsalted butter -250gm
The preparation method:
  • Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat. 
  • Once melted, increase the heat and bring to the boil. Once the surface is completely covered with foam,  stir  gently and reduce the heat to very low.
  • Simmer, uncovered and undisturbed for 30 minutes, or until the milk solids in the bottom of the pan have turned golden brown and the liquid on top is transparent. 
  • Remove from the heat and strain the butter through a sieve lined with linen . You may have to do this several times until  it is clear. Even the smallest of solids left in the ghee will reduce it's cooking properties 
  • Pour the ghee into a glass jar and seal tightly. This can be kept at room temperature for several months, provided no moisture is allowed to enter the ghee or for longer if refrigerated. It can also be frozen for up to 1 year.
