    1. 1
      In a heavy saucepan, heat butter very slowly over low heat until it has melted completely without any browning. Increase heat and bring melted butter to a boil just until top is covered with foam.
    2. 2
      Stir in onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, clove nutmeg fenugreek seeds and basil. Lower heat to lowest possible setting, and simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes. A clear layer of liquid will be at the top of the pan, and golden brown solids on the bottom.
    3. 3
      Pour clear liquid into a jar, straining it through several layers of cheesecloth. Discard seasonings and solids. Cover tightly and store in refrigerator, or at room temperature.

      Yes! Ghee gives a hint of sweetness to rice and to beans. This recipe makes plenty of ghee and was very simple to make.

      Needed this for Yetakelt W'et--and was so happy to find it here. Made a quarter of the recipe--which provided me with the amount I needed for the vegetable stew and filled a small jar which is now in the fridge. The flavor of the stew was spicy and buttery without being greasy or heavy. Thanks, Rita!
