Yield: 1 Cup
1 lb Unsalted butter
1/4 c Chopped onions
2 Garlic cloves, pressed
2 ts Grated ginger
1/2 ts Turmeric
4 Cardamom seeds, crushed

In a small pot, gradually melt butter & bring to bubbling. When the
top is covered in foam, add the other ingredients & reduce heat to a
simmer. Gently simmer, uncovered, on low heat. After about 45
minutes to 1 hour, when the surface becomes transparent & the milk
solids are on the bottom, pour the liquid through a cheesecloth into
a heat resistant container. Discard spices & solids.
Cover tightly & store in the fridge. Will keep up to 2 months.
