Ingredients

  • 4 lbs (16 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 to 3 tbsp water

Instructions

  1. Place butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. Let the butter melt, stirring it occasionally.
  3. Once the melted butter is boiling, reduce the heat to medium low and let simmer. You will notice a white foam forming.
  4. Keep stirring from time to time so that the butter will cook evenly.
  5. Once the color of the melted butter starts to change from yellow to golden brown and you notice a brown milk solid condensate at the bottom of the pan, at this step the ghee is ready.
  6. Sprinkle the water to obtain a ghee with a grainy texture. Let boil for about 2 minutes.
  7. Strain the ghee immediately using a mesh strainer.
  8. Let cool and store in airtight container.

Recipe Notes

 Notice that the ghee will solidify in a couple of hours.

This Salad is made of Romaine lettuce and croutons, dressed in Caesar salad dressing and garnished with grated Parmesan cheese. Caesar salad was named after Caesar Cardini , the Italian immigrant who operated restaurants in Mexico and the USA. In this recipe, I  have used my  homemade crispy garlic croutons, please check recipe here:
