Ghee is an essential part of Indian cooking that has been around for ages and will continue to do so. Ghee has a higher smoking point than butter so can handle hotter temperatures whilst cooking. This also has the benefit of being unsalted so can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes.

  • Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over moderate heat.
  • Increase the heat and bring the butter to a boil.
  • When the surface is completely covered with foam stir the butter gently and reduce the heat to the lowest possible setting.
  • Simmer uncovered and undisturbed for 45 minutes, or until the milk solids in the bottom of the pan have turned golden brown and the butter on top is transparent.
  • Strain the butter through a sieve lined with linen or four layers of cheesecloth.
  • If there are any solids in the ghee, no matter how small, strain it again until it is perfectly clear.
  • Pour the ghee into a glass jar and seal tightly.
  • This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups, and may be kept at room temperature for several months, or almost indefinitely refrigerated.
  • It will congeal if refrigerated, and so must be warmed before using if liquid ghee is called for.
