Homemade Butter Recipe / How to Make Butter / Homemade Buttermilk Recipe / How to Make Buttermilk

I love love love white butter, it is not only lord krishna's favorite one, but mine too..When i was little i used to gulp lots of them, but now i kind of stay away from them. When we were little, amma used to take the cream, malai which forms on top of the milk when she boils them in a small container, she used to do this regularly and after few days when quite a bit of cream is collected, then she used to churn it using a churner and collect the butter. She makes ghee using that butter.

But i am not that patient to collect the cream whenever i boil milk, so i take the instant and short route. I buy few packets of fresh cream and make butter using those..I made this for krishna jayanthy and offered lord krishna..

This homemade butter can be used to make homemade ghee and in making cakes and stuffs like that. But i wont suggest this to make frosting, because this has water content in them which is not good when you make frosting..So try this and let me know how it turns out..

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Makes : 250 grams of butter, 250 ml of buttermilk


Fresh Cream / Heavy Whipping Cream - 500 ml


Take cream in a large mixing bowl and use a electric beater to whip. 

Keep whipping, first it will get thick and stiff. This is whipped cream, You can use this for frosting cakes.

Now when you keep on whipping it will looks thick and kind of curdled, now add some cold water and beat..

You have to keep on whipping at this stage, it will slowly get curdled. At a point it will be completely curdled and the milk solid will be separated.

Use a spatula and gather the butter together to form a balls. This is homemade butter.

Add this to a bowl of cold water and let it stay there for 5 to 10 mins.

Now your homemade butter is done.

Take left over water from the butter is buttermilk, add some salt and asafoetida to it and have it. It is tasty or you can use it for any recipe that calls for buttermilk.
