butter questions

what is the difference between drawn butter and melted butter?

what is the difference between milk solids, milk fat, and butter?

Drawn butter, which is called "ghee" in Indian cooking, is simply the clear portion of melted butter.

You melt butter in a pan & allow the white solids to settle to the bottom. You then pour or "draw" off the clear portion only & discard the white solids. This makes a purer product for cooking, although to be honest I leave the solids when I melt butter as a condiment for lobster etc. I find it more flavorful.
