3 sticks unsalted butter
handful chopped onions
several cloves of roasted garlic
2 t grated ginger
½ t turmeric
4 cardamom seeds, crushed
1 cinnamon stick
2 cloves; whole
~1/2t nutmeg
~1/2t fenugreek seeds, crushed

heat butter til foamy; add everything and cook 45-60 mins. pour off butter; use spices for something else.

i always wondered how to make clarified butter or ghee. now i know!
