Happy Gokulashtami to all.

Benne or Butter is one of the favorites of Lord Krishna. Today's prasadam had butter and milk to appease nandakishora.

Benne was made at home in 2 easy steps. It's easy if you have a stand mixer or else you have to spend some good time shaking the bottle filled with cream :)

Ingredients :
1. Fresh Whipping Cream
2. Ice Cold Water
3. Stand Mixer

Step 1:
Pour Whipping cream to the mixer bowl and run on medium speed for13 ~ 14 minutes.

At the end of 14 mins, you can see butter and  milk separated. Stop the mixer.
Have ice cold water in a bowl ready. Clean your hands and scoop out the butter and transfer it to bowl filled with water. Butter is ready.

Some Notes :
1. Use Fresh Whipping Cream. These days you can find them easily in all supermarkets. Look in the refrigerated products section
2. Look at fat contents in the cream. More fat, creamier butter.
3. Delicious things tastes good in small quantities.
