Homemade Ghee (Clarified butter)


Unsalted butter sticks – 4

Fenugreek seeds – 7-8

Curry leaves – 4

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Makes 1 & 1/2 cups of ghee


  • Into a nonstick pan, add butter sticks & cook for approximately 15-20 mins or till the butter sticks are completely dissolved & froth comes up ( medium flame).
  • Keep mixing with a wooden spoon every few minutes.
  • Reduce the flame to low & gently keep stirring.
  • Add salt, fenugreek seeds & curry leaves & cook till you see a clear liquid & the froth disappears (5-10 mins approx.).
  • It’s a slow process but can get burnt easily, so once you see the froth make sure you are watching it closely to avoid getting burnt.
  • Tastes great with hot white rice or dal or with any curry.
  • Store it in a air tight container with no moisture & can be kept outside or in the refrigerator for long life.
  • Stays good for a few months.
