So, what is clarified butter?

Clarified butter is a type of butter that has had the milk solids and water removed, leaving only the pure golden liquid fat behind. This process not only removes impurities but also increases the smoke point, making it ideal for high-heat cooking methods such as sautéing or frying. The resulting product has a rich, nutty flavor with a smooth texture that is often used in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Clarified butter can be stored at room temperature for longer periods than regular butter and is a popular ingredient in many recipes, particularly those that require a deep, rich buttery flavor.
