Ghee is vegan or not . It depends on the way how it's made .

Ghee available in market is made from only dairy cow and we all know how dairy Cows are reared. That's why in my view , ghee available in market is not vegan...

But , best way to get vegan ghee is to contact your nearby farmer and ask him to give you ghee , made from the extra milk remain in udder after the calf has full his/her stomach . In this way you can get a fully vegan ghee....

Here is the recipe to make ghee from butter very easy at home.

We have to take 250gram of unsalted butter , cut the butter into small cubes to melt it easily other wise there is a chance of uneven burning while melting butter.


Put a small thick bottom vessel on medium flame. When vessel becomes hot , add the diced butter to the hot vessel. Keep mixing the butter until butter melts evenly and become liquid. If butter melts unevenly , we will not get our expected results.


Once completely melted , it starts to bubble , keep swirling the vessel so that the melted butter get heat evenly . 


In a few seconds , wait for bubbles to get bigger and start pooping sound . You will hear crackling sound.


Never stop swirling , as it has to take heat evenly . Slowly the bubble becomes smaller to form a foaming layer on top and liquid starts to change colour.


When you see a little brownish tint , these brownish tint suggest the the ghee is ready .


You can heat heat more if you prefer more tint . Then take off heat and leave the clarified butter to cook in its own heat for about three minutes.
