  • 500 gms butter
  • curry leaves or rock salt or drumstick leaves


  • Heat the butter in a heavy bottomed kadai in medium low flame to avoid burning, keep stirring in between. The butter slowly melts down, keep stirring.
  • Once it has melted down completely,allow the butter to boil - there will a sound when this process happens.Once the sound ceases the butter becomes frothy.
  • And within few minutes the froth will collect at the top as you can see.
  • Slowly the color turns to light brown.The residue will change color from white to brown.
  • At this stage add a pinch of rock salt or curry leaves or drumstick leaves,mix well and switch off. Rock salt is added for the residue to settle down.
  • Now strain using a metal strainer.The residue is collected as you can see....We usually mix it with rice and eat...yummm.Pure homemade ghee is ready.
