Ghee recipe, Homemade ghee from homemade butter

Ghee a clarified butter is an essential one in our Indian cuisine. It is used in many dishes savory and sweets for its taste, richness and flavors undoubtedly. It is very easily available in stores but the actual taste and flavors of it are not comparable with the homemade ghee. Agree? So here we will take a look at how to make ghee (for beginners) from homemade butter, yes from very scratch so that you can serve your family too a delicious desi ghee. As it sounds it is not that difficult to make ghee, once you make it on your own at home, you will never buy it again in stores as you will be a pro at it.  For this post I made the ghee from homemade butter but you can use store bought butter as well. All butter don’t yield good ghee. So what’s a good ghee? A good ghee should have perfect color, taste and texture. So choosing right butter is first step towards making good desi ghee. I usually use Kirkland butter available in Costco which yields in perfect ghee that satisfies all criteria of a desi ghee. This homemade butter ghee has little color drop but still tastes great. I prepared the butter using heavy cream and you can check its making in the link below:
