Home Made Ghee

Home Made Ghee

Homemade ghee from Butter

Homemade ghee from Butter

Things You need

1) Unsalted Butter – 400 gm ( or more)

2) 1 table spoon water( opional)

3) 1 pinch of salt(optional)

4) A heavy Bottomed pan

5) A fine mesh strainer

6) A glass jar.

Keep the butter in room temperature for some time (so that you can cut the butter easily).

Cut the butter in pieces and keep aside

Take a heavy bottomed pan and add the butter in to it.

Make sure to keep the heat medium and let it melt slowly until completely melted.

Once the butter is melted, you will find the fat separating from the milk solids.

It will start foaming and bubbling. At this point, lower the heat.

The bubbles will gradually get smaller and smaller

Soon there will be less bubbles and more foam.

The next stage is the milk solids will start to brown.at this stage just sprinkle 1 table spoon of water in to the boiling ghee followed by a small pinch of salt.( I prefer my ghee in a grainy texture than watery , if you don’t like grainy texture don’t sprinkle water or salt in tit)

When the bubbling and foaming stops, the milk solids turn deep brown and fall to the bottom of the pan and the Ghee itself become a golden in color.

Remove from heat and let it cool.

Strain the Ghee using a fine strainer and

Filter this into a clean glass container.
