  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select Saute function.
  2. Melt butter in the cooker until transparent bubbles are formed and you're able to see the bottom of the pot, 8 to 9 minutes. Turn off the cooker. Ghee will continue to cook as the pot cools down for 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool completely, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Cook's Note:
  • If the bottom of the pot looks brownish, take the inner pot out and place on a hot plate to cool down so that it does not cook further.
