This recipe calls for Ghee. Ghee is made by simmering unsalted butter in a large pot until all water has boiled off and protein has settled to the bottom. Read more about ghee here.
To prepare ghee, use 1 lb. of unsalted butter. Heat in a heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat and let the butter melt. When the butter starts getting frothy, turn the heat down to medium-low and let it continue cooking. Don’t let it burn, the butter will start to turn a darker golden color and the curds on the bottom of the pan will start to brown. Cook about 15 minutes and it should be set. Let it cool down and then strain into a jar leaving behind the little bits of stuff.
