Snack with Ghee Leftover

This recipe I learnt from my neighbor, while I was in Bangalore. Once I make ghee, I used to throw the leftover. But my neightbor told me this method and also this is very good for kids, as it has high fat content. First time I made this, everybody loved this snack, including my daughter. It tastes really awesome. The more you make ghee, the more the leftover will be. I got only few tablespoon with the store bought butter, but while I make butter at home and ghee (Homemade ghee) from that, we even get more leftover. It will be a very crispy granules. As I told, this is very very good for health, especially for kids. It seems to look like bread crumbs or like coffee granules.


Ghee leftover - about 3 tbsp
Ragi/Finger millet flour - 1/4 cup
Jaggery (Vellam) - 3 tbsp


I used the leftover from about 3 sticks of butter. So I used ragi flour and jaggery as mentioned. But you can increase or decrease them according to the ghee leftover you get.


1) Do this in the same pan you made ghee. Now heat that pan with the leftover in it and add ragi flour and jaggery.

2) Stir it for about 3 minutes, until you get rid of the raw smell. You will get into roasted rava/sooji consistency or like bread crumbs. At this stage you can switch off the flame. Also you can see the difference, as everything settled on the vessel will be clean.

3) Ghee leftover snack is ready. I got only few tablespoons with the leftover. (as much as in the bowl)

Very healthy and rich in fat snack is ready. So don't ever waste this leftover.
