White Sauce

Since I made an entry recently on Baked Salmon with Spinach requiring white sauce in the process, unless you know how to make it, you might not be able to cook the dish. So I thought to give a quick touch upon the recipe. Sorry, no photo for white sauce as the sauce is boringly white and looks like a batter, nothing special.

Ingredients: (for 1 cup white sauce)                     Cooking time: 7 minutes
ü  30 gm of butter
ü  2 tbsp all-purpose flour
ü  1 1/2 cup of milk
1) Heat butter in a pan. Since butter browns and evaporates fast, do this on low heat. When butter completely melts, add the all-purpose flour.
2) Stir in the flour without forming any lump. When flour is incorporated in the butter, add milk and whisk.
3) Keep stirring until milk reduces to a thick consistency. White sauce is ready. (Remember all through the process that white sauce should be cooked on low heat without flour forming any lump or butter browning.)
