Making fresh butter at home is the best thing to do.This is by far one of the best recipe I have put here.Nothing can beat the taste and texture of home made fresh butter/makkhan.
This Indian butter/makkhan is very smooth and soft in texture.It is made by the cream collected from whole cow milk.In my family, my mom makes this fresh butter/makkhan every now and then.During our childhood I remember it was the best thing to spread on bread or tortilla.
Traditionally butter/makkhan is collected by continuously churning of the cream which separates the solid milk fat from the butter milk.Apart from the butter, the butter milk is also known for its healthy cooling properties and it is the best drink during summer.
