Stove-Top Ghee

  Because the procedure is the same for making 1 pound (455 g) or 10 pounds (4.5 kg) of ghee, the equipment will be the same. Only pan size, heat regulation and storing containers vary.

Mint-Lime Butter

Homemade Butter

  In Indian homes, butter is churned today much as it has been for thousands of years. A large earthen pot called a ghee is half-filled with several days worth of ripened cream. By using a system of interconnected sticks and ropes, hand-agitation makes a wooden paddle whirl butter flecks into butter blobs. Our modern wonder the food processor has more than simplified the procedure. Depending on the size of your work bowl, you can...
