Ghee, a staple in Indian cooking, is popular for its high-smoke point and nutty, toasted flavor. The best and purest ghee is the one that is homemade from grass-fed, organic, unsalted butter. Store at room temperature or refrigerate for an extended shelf life.

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function.

  • 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.

  • Strain ghee using a strainer or cheesecloth into a clean, dry glass jar.

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.

I followed the recipe exactly. While waiting for it to cool down after about 5 minutes I smelt it burning. I looked into the pot and it had turned brown and the bottom of the instant pot was starting to turn black. The instructions said to give it 10 - 15 minutes. I'm thinking I should have lifted the pot out of the cooker after 2-3 minutes. But the instructions said nothing about that. I am waiting for it to cool all the way so I can taste it. I hope I can use it but have my doubts. Just tasted it! Mmmmm good. It taste nutty. With a little salt it would be wonderful! Read More
