You can make a very nice home made ghee from clotted cream in the microwave .Tastes much more nicer than the ghee in a can that we get here and also better than ghee made from butter.

(We use the clotted cream from our local marks and sparks. I am sure that there might be a US equivalent )



I would say that it is an excellent paratha that you made . A paratha is much more technically difficult to make than a chapathi.

Not only do you have to make the shape correct but you also have to cook it in such a way that it gets cooked in the centre without getting burnt outside.

Your paratha looks awesome..

It is out of desperation . The commercial ghee is usually made from butter and usually has many additives..

Home made ghee in india is usually made from cream collected from milk( usually collected over a few days and then made into ghee maybe once a week or so)

Making ghee from clotted cream is not cheap but is an easier way to replicate the flavour of home.

Clotted cream is virtually unknown in OOSA.

999 out of 1000 Murricans, if asked about clotted cream, would wonder what language you were speaking; and a fair number would report you to Immigration services as a dangerous alien.

The 1 out of 1000 Murricans who have heard of it is nycank and obviously he is an outlier.

Thanks for the idea. I've noticed clotted cream here before but not often. I have to go out of my way just to get buttermilk.

I learned about Clotted Cream from Saturday Night Live's English cooking skits.

It is possible to make your own, but you need rich, full-cream milk, that is not homogenised. The only place I've seen it done on a regular basis was in a farm kitchen. I guess it helps if you have your own cows.

Duh, I should know, but isn't buttermilk just made from yoghurt? The reason I don't know is that I am not fond of it. Especially with chilli in it.

The Indian buttermilk is made from yoghurt and chilli /salt etc and is not the same as what is called buttermilk in the west.

Don't ask questions if you haven't the patience to read the answers.

Goodness, I don't ask Wikipedia about things like that!

The question should be if I have the patience to wait until Mrs N wakes up. The answer, of course, is no

Samelike with distaff. Only it always turns out she doesn't know either and sends me to Wikipedia.

Delicious.
