Milk in the saucepan to make the white sauce

Stir continuously breaking up the floury lumps so that the milky mixture is quite smooth.

All of a sudden, the milk will start to heat up and bubble and the mixture thickens. Lower the heat immediately.

But keep stirring on low heat taking care not to boil the mixture. The sauce will thicken as you continue to stir.

Turn the heat off once the sauce is ready.
