The Amul Safed Makkhan resembles homemade white unsalted butter. From parathas to toasted bread, we tried the Amul Safed in our test kitchen for over two weeks. Here’s what we think.
Our reviews are research-based, and all trials and testings are conducted in-house over days and weeks. We have a strict no-free-sample policy to ensure our reviews are fair and impartial.
India’s most loved and amongst the most trusted dairy brands in India – Amul has added a new butter variant to its pre-existing range. The Amul Safed Makkhan is the newest addition to the long list of Amul products that line up dozens of shelves in any supermarket.
With Amul Safed Makkhan, Amul has yet again launched a product that comes with loads of nostalgia. Safed makkhan, or unsalted white butter is something made in millions of Indian kitchens using curd. The result is translucent white butter, which is smooth and creamy as only homemade butter can be.
We ordered the 100-gram mono-carton of this white butter by Amul to our test kitchen. For our Amul Safed Makkhan review, we compared the butter we ordered to a portion of homemade unsalted white butter. Along with taste and aroma, we tested the Amul Safed Makkhan for its creaminess over a dozen items.

Amul Safed Makkhan – Everything You Need To Know
Our major parameters for the Amul Safed Makkhan review were creaminess and spreadability along with taste, aroma, color, and the convenience it offers.
When the Amul Safed Makkhan was compared to homemade unsalted white butter, we found that there were no major differences in the color and aroma.
Though the Amul Safed Makkhan had a milky creaminess that white butter traditionally has, it was slightly lower in comparison to the homemade variant.
To know how Team Mishry tested this newest Amul product, read our Amul Safed Makkhan review.
Amul Safed Makkhan has the classic milky taste. Unlike salted yellow butter, this white butter has a subtle flavor.
We spread a generous dollop of the Amul Safed Makkhan over jowar rotis and toasted bread. In addition to this, we also made the Slurrp Farm pancakes using the Amul Safed butter.
Not only was the taste enhanced, but we couldn’t stop ourselves from relishing this creamy goodness.
The Amul Safed Makkhan is as close as it gets to homemade white butter. Visually, the Amul Safed butter looked similar to what one would make at home.
The aroma from our homemade white butter and Amul Safed Makhhan were very close too. This comes packed in the standard Amul packaging.
The spreadability of chocolate spreads, cheese spreads, and even butter heavily depends on the temperature in that region and how it is being stored. In addition to this, applying butter over something warm as compared to adding butter straight to the pan also affects the spreadability.
We kept our mono carton of the Amul Safed Makkhan at room temperature and noticed it spread well.
When compared to the homemade white butter, we noticed the creaminess wasn’t as intense in the Amul Safed Makkhan.
As the name suggests, white butter has the same color. Our homemade safed makkhan and Amul Safed Makkhan had minor differences in shade.
Naturally, butter has a pale yellow color. The depth of yellow can vary from a very mild one that almost looks off-white to a deeper shade of yellow based on additional ingredients or how cows have been grazed.
The 100 gram mono carton of Amul Safed Makkhan is priced at Rs 47/-. Most 100-gram butter packets from Amul are priced in the same range.
In our opinion, the Amul Safed Makkhan is a convenient and budget-friendly option.

Amul Safed Butter Review – Decoding This Milky Goodness
The color and aroma are very close to homemade white butter, though the creaminess is slightly lower.
That being said, the Amul Safed Makkhan is in one word convenient!
Adding the ‘granny’s touch’ to your homemade parathas has never been easier. It has a delectable milky creaminess and a rich aroma.
Did you know? White butter may be full of fats, but it actually helps with weight loss! Here’s how-
White butter is loaded with lecithin. Lecithin is a major component used in fat-burning supplements. Moderate consumption of white butter helps in burning fat over time, when combined with a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, of course.
