Making Ghee from Butter

Making ghee from Butter at home is a simple process if you know how to get it done. Amma normally gets it done for me. Today I prepared it. Clarified Butter or Ghee is made from Butter by heating or cooking the butter.

Heat a kadai and once its dry put the butter on high flame. Once it starts melting, stir it.

It will start bubbling like this. Add rock salt to the bubbling butter. This is get the dirt or other particles if they are present.
Then foams will start coming out. This is when you know your ghee is ready.
Switch of the flame, and add few fenugreek seeds to the cooling ghee. This gives good aroma and also gives a good taste to the ghee.
Once its cool, transfer to a container.
