White sauce, also known as BĂ©chamel, is used in a variety of dishes and is the base for many sauces. Here are the steps for a basic medium white sauce, with adjustments for other thicknesses. This sauce is used for making white pasta or noodles as Italian Cuisines.  It’s very easy to make white sauce at home with flour and milk, thick consistency is called white sauce.

  1. Creamy sauce,love with pastas.

  2. You can just add all the ingredients together, mix so that no dry lumps are there and then cook it. You will get the same result with less effort :)

    The sauce looks nice and perfect!

  3. Perfectly made,as I always have difficulty in making this sauce..your stepwise pictorial helps,hope next time I will get it in a correct consistency...

  4. Yes agree with Rajani, anyway this is a good stuff..

  5. I have always stayed away from making bechamel, for no apparent reason. I have to try your recipe when making lasagna next time.

  6. Simple and easy to make sauce .. I have not tried this though.

  7. Love the creaminess that bechamel sauce gives to a dish without adding cream. I've used it to thicken tomato soup and it turned out delicious.
