White Sauce | Béchamel Sauce

This is the mother o all sauces! It is used in many dishes like Pasta. Now, there are a variety of brands available in the market. (like the one on the Ad on your left) But I've got an easy way of preparing it at home sweet home. And the way it blends with Pasta.... God save me! it is absolutely delicious! I'm running out of adjectives to use! :-D I guess that is what happens when you start appreciating food & trying out new dishes! 
You can make & store this sauce for a long time in the refrigerator. Although, when freshly consumed, it tastes heavenly! If you use onions in the sauce, it is better to consumed it that day itself! ☺

Ingredients ~
All purpose flour - 1 tablespoon OR  Cornflour - 1 teaspoon
Butter - 2 tablespoons
Garlic Cloves - 2-3 crushed 
Milk - 150-200 ml 
Salt - 3/4 teaspoon
Pepper Powder - 1 teaspoon
Grated Cheese - 2 tablespoons
Chilli Flakes - 1 tablespoon (optional)
Oregano Powder - 1 tablespoon (optional)
Onion - 3 tablespoons (finely chopped - optional)

Method ~
1. Melt the butter on low heat. Sauté the garlic for 1 minute (if you want, the onions too)
2. Stir in the flour & sauté for 1 minute. Don't let it burn.
3. Add milk & stir continuously to avoid lumps.
4. Once it thickens, add the salt, pepper, chilli flakes, oregano & grated cheese & mix well.
