Ghee is used in preparing many Indian dishes. This is an easy way to make it yourself. Just watch carefully while it's on the stove.
- 1 lb unsalted butter
- In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter over very low heat; so not stir.
- When butter is completely melted, increase heat just enough to bring to boiling. Stir once and immediately reduce the heat to low. Simmer the butter, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
- Line a strainer with several layers of clean cheesecloth. Strain the clear liquid through it, making sure none of the solids in the bottom of the pan goes through. Pour into a clean jar. Cover and label. Store in the refrigerator.
Perfect! I cook with ghee a few times a week, and was always annoyed by how expensive it was even though it's basically just drawn butter. This recipe makes just about the same amount as what I used to buy, but at a third of the price- very cool, and so easy to make! Thanks lots, I'm never buying ghee again.

Haven't made ghee before. This was easy to make. Used this to make Garlic Rice - India #482283 by Baby Kato. Thank You. Made for ZWT8.
