Quick White Sauce in Microwave


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 –


Butter                                 1 tbsp

All purpose flour            1 tbsp

Milk                                    1 cup



  • 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!
