Even though most of us are working from home and have long working hours at the moment, cooking serves as the perfect stress busters for many. And also, the joy of making dishes from scratch for your loved ones is unparalleled. So if you are always looking at simple recipes to treat your family and friends with, why not make your own butter or makhan at home? Look at this easy recipe to make white butter from chef Sanjeev Kapoor.

All you need is a good quality cream or malai to make white butter without any preservatives or salt, which is considered healthy, as per the chef.

Ingredients

Malai or cream
Ice cold water

Method

*Combine malai and ice-cold water and blend it nicely till the butter separates from the liquid.
*Keep it aside for 15-20 minutes; you will see the butter becoming solid and thick.
*Skim the butter and leave out the water.
*This is how white butter is made – without any salt, preservative-free, and healthy.

People also use a churner to separate the butter from malai by churning it in both directions and/or in a circular motion until the butter separates from the cream.
