Method

  1. Start collecting the Cream or Malai from the boiled cows milk. You will get a good amount of cream when the milk is cooled completely. This can be arrived by refrigerating the boiled milk. Incase you forget to take the malai / cream from milk, you can take it from curd and mix with the rest of the collected malai.
  2. Store the malai in a Statinless steel container and refreigirate it. You can collect and store the malai for 2 to 3 weeks. Below is the cream/malai which was got from 1 ltr Natti cows milk and stored for 18 days. This quantity yields around 250 gms of butter.

3. If you feel the butter is freezed and hard, jus keep it out until it becomes easy to take it in a spoon. But see to that it is cool, only then you can extract butter easily.

4. Keep 4 cups of water in the refrigerator and allow it to cool for half n hour.

5. Now take half of the cream in a Wet mixie jar and pour 1 cups of cold water. Use the pulse mode and whip the mixture in the mixie until you see the butter floating at the top (refer below pic). This might take 3 to 4 min of whipping. Please see to that the mixture is cold otherwise it would be difficult to take out the butter.
