  8. Hi Kamala, I tried this dish it was wonderful. I loved it. I like your website and I am trying some of your dishes. Please help me how to make ghee out of butter. Thank you so much.

    • Thank you for your feed back Lydia Grace. To make ghee from butter – In a thick bottomed vessel put the butter and keep it on medium flame. Stir now and then. First butter starts melting and then starts boiling. After few minutes, you will find oil like substance. This is ghee. At this point switch off the stove. Remove the vessel and strain it to a clean jar. Keep it in a cool place. After few hours, it will become solid. Before removing the ghee from stove, you can add a string of curry leaves or drumstickstick leaves. Then strain it. This will enhance the flavour. Please note that you have to use good quality unsalted butter for this.
