Thuppa or Ghee

Thuppa or Ghee is similar to clarified butter but not the same. Lot of people translate it to be clarified butter, the difference is that in making Clarified Butter, the milk solids are filtered out as soon as they separate and the cooking ends. While in Thuppa or Ghee the cooking is continued till the milkd solids settle down and brown a bit that adds a nutty flavour and also results in a lot less water content than Clarified butter. That also makes Thuppa have a longer shelf life than Clarified Butter.

  • Once you see a simmer in the melted butter, adjust the flame to as low as possible such that you still have a very mild visible simmering.
  • You do not have to do much now other than keep an eye on the pot and let the water in it evaporate.
  • Soon you will see the milk solids start to separate and float. And after some time they will start settling down.

  • Once the milk solids settle down,you need to keep an eye on the pot. You will see the solids settled in the bottom start to brown. Allow as much solids to settle and brown. You will still find some floating stubbornly, and we do not need all of them to settle.
