  • Butter - 200gm
  • Curry leaves - 1 sprig optional
  • Butter milk - 2 tbsp optional


Preparation :

  • Soak the curry leaves in buttermilk and keep aside. Take the butter out of freezer and keep it in room temperature for 15 minutes.


  • Place the butter in heavy bottomed pan and keep the flame low or low to medium. The butter will start to melt down with a sound (shhhh..).
  • Keep stirring with a ladle and  butter will melt down completely at one stage & the sound ceases. Now the butter will start to foam up.
  • keep stirring. At one stage the foam will change in to brown in colour & the clear ghee will pop out as shown in the pic. Add curry leaves at that time & switch off the flame immediately.
  • Filter out the residue and store in air tight container.
