Making homemade butter is very easy. All you need is just one ingredient and you have some homemade butter in no time at all.
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.
About Homemade Butter
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.
Ingredients used to make butter
There is one ingredient that is used to make butter at home. All you need is cream. You can use store bought thick cream or heavy cream. You can also make butter using whipping cream.
Butter is usually made whipping cream (churning cream) till it is separated. Frankly it is over whipped cream which got separated. When you over whip cream it gets separated into buttermilk and butter.
I used store bought cream to make this butter. But you can use homemade cream. Making homemade cream is pretty easy. All you need is some cows milk, keep collecting the malai (aadai) which is formed on the top once you boil and cool the milk. That is cream.
You can even collect cream from raw milk too. Just skip the top thick part from raw milk.
Take cream in a large mixing bowl and use an electric beater to whip. You can use a blender as well. Make sure the cream is cold.
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 whip. 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. Enjoy.
