In the process of boiling, butter gets gradually free from moisture, and milk proteins like lactose and casein get eliminated.

Finally, the clarified fat of the boiled butter remains in the boiling pot, which ghee producers can collect by straining the oil by a strainer or by filtering with filter cloths.  

The method of dairy butter boiling is a slow cooking process and this process creates lots of foam in the boiling pot.

Gradually the formation of foam (froth) gets reduced and ultimately froth formation gets stopped, which is an indication that ghee is almost cooked. Clarified butter looks yellow and it is produced in liquid form, and with a unique nutty aroma.
