Clarified butter is mostly popular in the Western countries. But the traditional ghee making process is slightly different. To make ghee the milk solids are not removed and moreover they are simmered and boiled until the milk solids are turned brown and caramelized. Ghee has a nutty toasted aroma due to the caramelization of the milk solids. However, clarified butter is light golden in color and creamier in texture. Ghee is mostly used in Middle-Eastern countries for making sweets, vegetables and several other dishes.
