This Event runs from 19th August to 10th September :)


Now lets discuss some RULES :)


* There is no restriction for the type of recipes :) Anyyything healthy,attractive & related to kids lunch box, whether sweet or savory is allowed :)

* All the entries must be linked to my this Event Announcement page "Back to School Lunch Ideas", with the post entry. This is COMPULSORY. Entry posted without my Announcement page link won't be accepted.

* Use of logo is not mandatory, but recommended :)

* Multiple entries will be most welcomed.

Home made Butter

Why waste fresh cream?? Lets make butter :)


Home Made, home made butter, makhan, homemade butter, making butter at home, make butter, recipes using fresh cream, how to make fresh cream at home, how to use fresh cream, malai,


Ingredients:



Fresh Milk Cream                                           1/2 cup
Cold Water (In summer)                                  2 cups
Warm water (In winters)

A blender =)


Procedure:



To make home made butter is really an easyyyy task :) Why prefer preservatives and artificially made butter when it can easily be made at home with pure ingredients. 

Almost all of u drink fresh milk daily, and after boiling the milk and cooling it down, u get a plenty of clotted cream on the top. Mostly people don't get it what to do with cream, throw it away or whattt?? Lemme tell u a precious tip - To make butter.


What u should do is to start gathering all the cream in a container. This skimmed cream should be freezed daily. When u get plenty of it, like a cup or two, butter is ready to be made :)


Below is shown some of the cream :)
                                                                

Home Made, home made butter, makhan, homemade butter, making butter at home, make butter, recipes using fresh cream, how to make fresh cream at home, how to use fresh cream, malai,


Now what u have to do is to pour cream (say half cup) in the blender, and appox. 2 cups of water (Cold in summer, n slightly warm in winter) and simply start blending! Yes yess its that simple lol :)

Note: There is no fixed amount of cream and water that is to be used for making butter.

Now.. Start blending at intervals.. for like 30 seconds.. and wait until butter lumps start floating above the buttermilk :) All the butter will come at top in the form lumps.. when u see a clear white water beneath the lumps.. butter is ready :))

Just take a spoon and scoop out all the butter out of the blender into the bowl. U can discard the buttermilk or use it for the next batch of cream :) (Although u can also use it as a Whey - Lassi by adding a pinch of salt). 

Squeeze all water out of the butter.. and here u goo...yumm!! 

U can store in fridge for a week or u can freeze it for months :))
