Homemade fresh cream is the one that I rarely make at home. I wanted to try homemade cream for my dishes, which requires fresh cream so I thought of making it from the malai that I collect daily from milk for preparing ghee. I have made only a small quantity that I needed. This can be prepared in required quantity and refrigerated. This cream can be used for making gravies but not advisable for desserts.
1.Boil milk and cool down. Keep it in fridge for few hours till the malai forms a layer at top.
2.Collect the malai using a strainer and store in a clean vessel.
3.Place the vessel in fridge and let it refrigerate for a day. (For instant little quantity of cream, whisk the malai well and cream will be ready)
4.When the vessel is full, transfer it to a blender and give a spin.
5.The fresh cream is ready for use.
So start collecting malai daily after you boil milk to make fresh cream, butter or ghee.
