What Is Ghee?
Ghee is a form of clarified butter, which means that all the milk solids have been removed. It’s made by simmering butter until it separates into three layers: water, milk solids, and fat. The water evaporates first, and then the milk solids sink to the bottom. Once they’re skimmed off with a spoon or spatula, you’re left with pure golden-yellow ghee on top, ready for use in cooking or as an ingredient in other dishes! Ghee has a higher smoke point than regular butter, so it stays clear when heated up – perfect for frying eggs without getting too browned on the outside before being cooked through on the inside! Now you know what ghee is!

Why Make Ghee In The Instant Pot?
Cooks have discovered that making ghee in the Instant Pot is a great way to get rich, buttery flavor without all of the dairy fat. Ghee is made by boiling butter until the milk solids separate and then simmering it until the water evaporates, leaving behind pure butterfat. This process can be done in about 20 minutes in the Instant Pot, compared to an hour or more on the stovetop. Plus, because the Instant Pot is a closed system, there’s no need to constantly stir the ghee or watch it closely to make sure it doesn’t burn. So why not give this easy cooking method a try?
