About Butter or Makhan
Butter is called makhan in the Hindi language. We Indians love homemade makhan. Makhan is the most have in North India. I also love homemade makhan.

Definitely, it is easy to make. I will show you the easy way to make makhan from the mixer. It is one of the easiest ways to make makhan at home.
You can make makhan from malai (milk cream) and curd. In this post, I will show you how to make makhan from malai or milk cream.
I used a mixer to make makhan. But, traditionally my grandmother used the mathani rai for making makhan from malai or curd.
My mother still uses the mathani rai to make it. I personally use the mixer method. But, sometimes I use the mathani rai also.
I always have makhan with the bharwa parathas like aloo paratha, gobhi paratha, pyaz paratha, paneer paratha, mooli paratha, aloo pyaz paratha, mix veg paratha etc.
And in the winter I add makhan on top of the sarso ka saag, palak paneer, missi roti, bajre ki khichdi, bajre ki roti. It increases its taste of it.
You can have it on any type of khichdi or pulao. It tastes delicious.
