Quick White Sauce in Microwave

IMG_0705

There are recipes and there are some amazing awesome recipes which make you jump with joy. This one by Saffron Trail is one of them. Since we are in a temporary accommodation, my cooking options are limited. But white sauce can make my daughter eat anything. I can hide any vegetable or other stuff she doesn’t like, in the white sauce and she will gobble it up like a dream. So I borrowed some flour from my mother-in-law when I visited her the last weekend and with butter and milk I had, I made this delightful white sauce and it was bliss!

I am giving the usual measurements I use for the white sauce but I am not sure what I used this time because I had no measuring spoons. I went with my gut and it was still awesome. The secret is, of course, when in doubt use more butter. So here goes –

WHAT WE NEED

Butter                                 1 tbsp

All purpose flour            1 tbsp

Milk                                    1 cup

Salt

WHAT TO DO

  • Melt some butter on medium for 30 seconds in a microwave safe bowl
  • Add the flour and whisk well. Use a fork if you don’t have a whisk.
  • Add the milk and whisk well
  • Microwave on medium for 30 seconds
  • Remove the bowl and whisk
  • Microwave again for 30 seconds
  • Add salt and whisk
  • Repeat it once or twice till it reaches the sauce consistency
  • Enjoy it with some pasta or boiled veggies!
