How to make ghee from butter at home?

  • Cut the butter into small pieces and melt it in a heavy bottom saucepan.
  • Once melted lower the heat and let it simmer. In the beginning, there will be a good amount of foam on top, as time goes foam will starts to disappear.
  • After 15 minutes, you will notice the bubbles will be clear, very tiny and foam disappears completely.
  • In less than a minute, you will notice the foam will re-appear and start to rise in the pan.
  • Turn off the stove, let the foam settle down for few seconds.
  • And strain the ghee in glass or stainless steel jar.
