How to make Ghee at home

How to make Ghee at home!!!!!here is the most economical and traditional Indian way of preparing from milk or clarified butter.Whenever My mom prepares Ghee,our home used to be filled with Ghee aroma and she uses mostly in Sakkarai pongal,Ven pongal,Dosa,carrot halwa,Moong dal halwa,Jeera rice,Dal tadka & so on…Mom used to prepare ghee from milk which is really long process where everyday when she boils the milk ,she used to collect the cream which would be formed on the top layer of boiled milk in a separate vessel and store in refrigerator.She repeats this process until the vessel gets filled with the cream collected from boiled milk everyday.Then she used to grind the cream in food processor by adding little cold water and tada !!!! you get solid butter by draining away excess water from it 😀 .Then she used to heat the butter in pan for about 15-20 mins.Then rest till it gets cooled and then filter the ghee from residues into sterilized bottle.But as I am lazy gal 😉 used to buy butter from store and heat it for about 20 mins in pan or until it forms slight brown particles.Then let it cool and then filter the ghee from residues into sterilized bottle.After few hrs it will turn into Golden solid consistency…isn’t it the simple way on How to make Ghee at home ?? 😉 😉
