Take 500 gm of butter and cook the butter gently over moderate heat for approximately 15 minutes.
While preparing the ghee, a layer of foam will start surfacing on the top either it can be removed or it will slowly settle as sediments in the end. Stir the pan occasionally and avoid burning . After sometime it will turn golden yellow and boil silently, that is the stage when it is done. Let it cool and pour in a clean sterilized container leaving the sediment in the pan.
Ghee is ready to be used for cooking.
