Bechamel Sauce

 

Did you know that white sauce is not just flour, butter and milk? I did not know that for so many years. Recently I found a more flavorful recipe from the Venkatesh Bhat show and I had to try it immediately. And I like the name too – Bechamel Sauce!  

  

Makes around 2 Cups

WHAT WE NEED

Unsalted butter         2 tbsp

All purpose flour       2 tbsp

Milk                                2 cups

Salt

Onion, peeled              1 medium

Cloves                            5-6

Bay leaf                          1

Nutmeg powder          1/2 tsp

WHAT TO DO   

  • Poke the cloves in the raw peeled onion at a inch apart from each other in a straight line
  • Melt the butter in a pan
  • Once the butter is melted, add the flour and whisk till it attains a sandy consistency
  • Add the milk and whisk till mixed together.
  • Add the onion, bay leaf, salt and nutmeg powder.

  

  • Whisk till the liquid thickens
  • Remove the onion and bay leaf from the sauce.
  • Remove the pan from heat and use it to make pasta or lasagna or anything else.
  • Enjoy!

 

NOTES

  1. I did use the onion later on to cook. It worked fine.
