Butter/makkhan (Homemade)

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Cream/Malai: 3-4 cups
  • Curd/yogurt: 1 table spoon

Preparation:

  1. I use cream (malai) from the milk of regular house hold use which has been collected for 2-4 weeks.
  2. It is necessary to store this malai/cream in a container in the freezer.
  3. This is to be converted into butter, after collecting 3-4 cups of malai.

How to make butter from malai:

  1. Take out the malai container; bring this malai to room temperature.
  2. Add curd/ yogurt into the malai, stir well.
  3. Cover it, after 6-8 hours, malai will get thick and slightly sour smell.
  4. Place the container into refrigerator for minimum 2 hours.

Method:

  1. Take out the malai container from the refrigerator.
  2. Churn/blend this fermented malai using hand blander/food processor on medium to high speed.
  3. Churn until it reaches a semisolid state (5-7minutes).
  4. Now, butter will start to separate into butter and butter milk.
  5. Butter comes up to the top or it is floating in the buttermilk.
  6. Pour butter milk through soup strainer to other container.
  7. Now butter stayed on the strainer and buttermilk pass through the strainer (As photo given).
  8. You can use spoon/fist to press out buttermilk from the butter.
  9. Now homemade butter is ready to spread on sliced bread, paratha, and soup and for many more use like paneer paratha, flex seed paratha…..
