How to prepare Ghee:

Wash the butter for 4-5 times in water so that all the butter milk gets separated.
(Add water to the butter & stir it using a spoon; discard washed water after few minutes.Repeat this process for 4-5 times until you get the clear water even after washing.)
You can keep the collected washed butter in refrigerator. Prepare ghee once in  a week. Just keep the butter out from refrigerator 5-6 hours before the preparation of ghee.
Wash the butter 1-2 times in water.

Melt the butter in a pan using medium flame.
Foamy and cloudy bubbles will appear. Starts making a sizzling sound.

When the butter melts completely heat using a low flame.
After few minutes when all the liquid & moisture evaporates the sizzling sound decreases. The cloudy bubbles will get clear.
The golden brown milk solids settled at the bottom of the pan. The clear ghee remains as golden yellow liquid with a pleasant smell.
Stain the ghee using strainer to separate the sediments.
 Homemade Ghee
Store the ghee in an airtight container. The ghee becomes yellow when it cools completely.

Recently I have purchased curd churning machine called Mathana. It is very good and it requires less time for the process.
For churning the curd using mathana you need a round shaped vessel.
