Boil the milk in low flame, this will allow lot of cream to collected at the top layer. Now refrigerate this milk for 4 hours. Lots of cream gets added to top layer. Separate this layer, from milk. This cream can be used in preparation of Ghee. This milk will have less fat.

Hasina-hi, milk is made up of basically water-fat-solids not fat.now cow milk by and large has only 4 % fat content.skim milk's fat content is about 2%or less,so in case you have time on your hands -you can boil the milk-let it cool down without disturbing the pot to enable the fat to solidify as a layer on the surface-which can be skimed off/removed to give you skim mild.the other easier and fast method to reduce fat content is to add equal quantity of water to milk,this will not only reduce fat content but also make digestion of milk easier .the choice is your as to how you shall do so.in india mixing of water in equal quantity in quite prevalent in the rural areas to reduce fat and increase digesion.

1. Chill the milk quickly and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. Then skim the cream off the top of the fluid with a spoon. When you begin to see watery, bluish-colored skim milk in the spoon, stop skimming. Next pour the cream into a jar, cap the container tightly, and let it sit on the kitchen drainboard for approximately 12 hours. 2.shake it up the jar and it allows the thick fluid to splash against the walls of the container more violently when the jar is shaken. This splashing -technically known as concussion-is what turns cream into butter.start shaking by keeping in mind that concussion is what makes the butter form. Practice agitating the jar so that a heavy impact occurs between the cream and the walls of the container. The length of time you'll have to shake the liquid before you'll begin to see butter depends on [a] the cream's temperature, [b] the enthusiasm with which you agitate the jar, and [c] the amount of cream in the container. Hence, it's better to look for butter rather than to try to make it "by the clock". (in case you're wondering, though, I usually have to continue shaking for 15 to 30 minutes.) What do you look for? Just before you get butter, you'll notice that the churned cream is becoming "heavy" . . . then you'll begin to see a definite separation between the buttermilk and a heavy mass of butter. At this point, you don't really have butter yet . . . but you're very close . . . so keep right on shaking the jar with somewhat less vigor. Within seconds, the heavy mass will turn yellow, become firm, and separate from the milk. Do not shake the jar much beyond the point where the butter has formed into slightly firm granules. Too much concussion will make the finished spread "hard". 3.strain the butter from the buttermilk with the aid of a colander or other straining device. (And save that delicious buttermilk!) Then, while the solids are still in the colander, rinse them thoroughly with cold water. (Warm water will make the butter soft ... the warmer, the softer.) Your butter should now be crumbly, rather than a firm, solid mass. 4.Next, put the butter in a cereal (or other) bowl. (The size of the bowl will depend, of course, on how much butter you have. I sometimes save several days' cream for one large batch ... in which case I need something larger than a cereal bowl.) With very clean hands, work the butter around the sides of the bowl and tip it to one side to let the water run out. After you've "worked" the water out of the butter, and the mass has become fairly firm, sprinkle some salt over it (I use about a half teaspoon of salt per half pound of butter). Work the salt in, turn the butter over, and work it in some more. Taste the butter, and-if necessary?add more salt.

All that's left now is to put your lusciously creamy homemade spread into a covered container, place the buttermilk in a capped jar or bottle, and store both containers in the refrigerator until needed.

hello hasina

Strain fresh milk into a clean, shallow, large pan and allow the container to situncovered and undisturbed-in your refrigerator for 24 hours. The next day, take the pan from the fridge and-with a large spooncarefully skim off the cream that has risen to the top. Now what is left is "The skim milk"! have a nice day!

Hello hasina,

To make skimmed milk , boil the milk and skim the fat layer (malai) that is formed after it has cooled. Repeat this procedure at least twice or three times to get almost fat free milk. An easier way to make skim milk is to mix skim milk powder with water to make milk, curds, low fat paneer etc. Skim milk provides all the goodness of milk except the fat. hopw this helps you

Preparing skim milk at home does not demand much effort from your side. Believe me, it is very easy to prepare.

I do not know how milk is processed and sold in Tanzania. In the United States, commercially sold milk is homogenized, which means that the cream is mechanically processed into the rest of the milk and cannot be separated. However, if you are lucky enough to be getting fresh milk that has not been homogenized, simply refrigerate. The cream rises to the top; you can literally skim this off to remove most of the fat from your milk. You can do the same when making yogurt; make it with the whole milk and then once it's refrigerated just skim the layer of cream off completely.

This will not give you 100% fat free milk but it will dramatically reduce fat and calories in your milk.

Hi Hasina,

Heat the cows milk with adding water to it till it boils and then cool it aside with shaking the vessel.After it cools the cream would form a layer in the top.Remove it and your skimmed milk is ready without a machine.

First heat the cow milk on a low flame. Let them cool down. The top layer on the milk is Cream, which when collected in more quantity and churned, you can extract butter from it. When you seperate the Cream layer from the top of the cooled milk, you will remain with skimmed milk. If you want you can heat the milk second time after removing the Cream layer, to make sure no cream is left over in the milk.

Hi Hasina,

You can boil the milk well and allow it to cool down. The top layer of the cream can be removed and used. Once cream is remove, the milk is thinner and lower in fat .

Skim milk is a dairy product with an extremely low fat percentage. In some nations, skim milk is labeled as “fat free” milk, since many labeling laws allow foods with negligible fat contents to be labeled as “fat free”. Most grocery stores and dairies stock skim milk, along with low-fat and whole milk products. For people who are concerned about the amount of fat in their diets, skim milk is an excellent alternative to whole milk, although some individuals do not enjoy the flavor.

You get the skin milk after separating the fat from the milk by removing the butter and other cream products from the milk. It is highly an intensive work to be done at home.

Put boiled milk in refrigerator; when it cools - filter it; this way you may separate all the fat from the milk.
