Unsalted White Butter is a food product that is made with whisking milk fats. It looks and has a texture very similar to whipped cream. This is a must in every North Indian household.


The white butter is pure and without any colour or added preservatives. Not even salt is added and so is known as unsalted butter. This butter is flavourless and smooth, silky in texture.

For variations, you can add pepper. It will taste really nice. If you have garlic powder, then adding it will make this garlic butter.

We can use unsalted White butter in baking cakes or making biscuits. However, the butter can be used as a spread in sandwiches, burgers, or on bread.

Making it in your home may sound difficult and exhausting. It may have been both back in the old days. But not anymore. The process is now much quick and easy because of blenders and processors.

In Punjab, butter is applied to every kind of parathas. Or, in fact, they have it with any food recipes. So it is hard to imagine them without this unsalted white butter at hand.

Butter is usually derived from whole full-fat milk. But some may even make this from curd.

The unsalted white butter needs to be derived from milk every half a month or a month at most. It would be best if you refrigerated it to have a longer expiry date.
