How it's made-butter

Making butter by hand is known to humans for centuries. This is how they do it in Nepal. They pour the milk in containers called teka and beat it by hand till it turns into butter like consistency. it's very similar to the way my grandma does it in Bulgaria too and the countries are so far away from each other. Cultures evolved in a similar way...
