  • Unwrap the butter and place it in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Put the saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir the butter as it melts. Once the butter is completely melted, it will start to bubble. Lower the heat at this point.
  • Cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until the milk proteins have completely separated. Turn off the heat when the bottom layer starts to turn golden brown.
  • Allow the ghee to cool down completely. Then strain the ghee using a strainer or cheese cloth into a clean and dry glass jar. Store at room temperature or can be refrigerated for extended shelf life.



  • Depending on the amount of butter used in the recipe the cooking time will be shorter or longer.
