Homemade Butter


Heavy whipping cream or home made malai -1cup
Salt  -1/4 tsp to taste
Turmeric – a pinch
Ice cold Water – 3-4 tsp


Take 1 cup cream or malai and pour entire quantity into a blender. Now start blending for about 45 seconds to 1 minute, check it if it has thickened or else blend it for some more time. Now it will look like icing cream.

Now, blend it for another minute or so. You will notice that the mixture starts to separate. Now you can add salt, a pinch of turmeric (for colour) and 3 tsp of ice-cold water. You have to blend it well again for 15 seconds. You will see that all the liquid has come out. Pour the content into a strainer, drain all liquid by mashing. The drained liquid is butter milk. And  you have got fresh butter in your strainer.

Important is to have a blender and a strainer to make it real fast. I have not added salt as I wanted unsalted butter. But you can add salt to taste and/or different types of herbs as per preference. Turmeric is used for slightly yellowish colour. But you can make without salt and turmeric to get plain white butter.
