Remove lid and remove cardamom pods, cloves, and cinnamon.

Note: *Make the clarified butter by melting 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a saucepan on medium low heat. When melted, skim off the foam and then strain contents slowly through cheesecloth into a bowl to remove all solids. Use per recipe instructions.

**Coconut water can be store bought or homemade. To make coconut water, put 1 cup of grated coconut in a quart of water, bring it to a simmer, then remove it rom heat and let it sit, covered, for 20 minutes. Strain the water and use in place of the coconut water and plain water.
