Hi guys !!!! How are you all…

Today  I am going share my homemade recipe of white sauce with you all. White sauce also popularly known as Béchamel sauce is an Italian traditional sauce & plays an important part in many Italian cuisines. It is also a base sauce of many other sauces, made from roux (butter & flour) & milk as main ingredients.

Pasta

This sauce goes well with pasta, lasagna, macaroni, baked vegetable, Alfredo pizza & many more dishes which require a smooth & rich creamy texture. Its consistency can be altered by adjusting roux to milk proportion depending on the use.

Serving : 2-3

Preparation time : 5-10 min

Cooking time : 15-20 min

Ingredients:

  • Butter                     : 1 teaspoon
  • Plain flour                : 2 teaspoon
  • Milk                         : 1 cup
  • Garlic paste              : 1/2 teaspoon (Optional)
  • Finely chopped onion  : 3 teaspoon (Optional)
  • Oregano                   : 1 teaspoon
  • Black pepper             : 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chilly flakes              : 1/2 teaspoon (Optional)
  • Salt                         : As per taste

 

Method:

Step 1: In a saucepan heat the butter, add garlic paste & finely chopped onion. Cook it for 1 min. You can skip adding garlic & onion in this step as it is purely optional. I love some garlic flavor in my pasta & lasagnas so I like adding it in white sauce itself. For baked vegetable or Alfredo pizza you can skip.

Add plain flour

Step 3: Gradually whisk in heated milk. There should not be any lump formation in the sauce. Stir continuously & bring it to boil. If some lumps are formed one can use this masher to remove all the lumps till the mixture is smooth.

Step 4: Add oregano, black pepper, chilly flakes & salt. Cook for another 5 minutes. Check the sauce consistency with your spoon. If it forms a light layer on your spoon your sauce is ready.
