Method For Jain White Sauce

  1. For making the Jain White Sauce, heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan. Tradionally, white sauce is made by boiling the milk with a studded onion but here we have not used onion and made a jain recipe.  
  2. Once the butter has melted, add the plain flour.
  3. Cook on a slow flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously with the help of a whisk. This is called as a roux which acts a thickening agent for the White Sauce. The frequent stirring helps in even cooking of the flour apart from preventing it from forming lumps.
  4. Once you see the flour has become a little froth and golden in colour, reduce the flame to low and add the milk. Pour the milk with one hand and whisk using the other hand. If you are vegan or allergic to dairy products, then use almond milk.
  5. Whisk well and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, or till the Jain White Sauce thickens, while stirring continuously. It is very important to mix continuously after you add the milk and whisk until the flour and milk have incorporated well. If not whisked well, you might get lumps in your Jain White Sauce
  6. Add the salt and pepper.
  7. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 more minute. You can even add little nutmeg powder to enhance the flavor of your Jain White Sauce.
  8. Cool the Jain White Sauce completely, pour in an air-tight container and refrigerate/freeze. Remember, on cooling the white sauce will thicken more. You can even prepare the white sauce in a microwave, refer this recipe to learn how to make White Sauce In MicrowaveIf the sauce is to be used later, add a little milk, mix well and re-heat it.The ratio of butter:flour:milk is ALWAYS remain 1:1:10 to get a perfect consistency thin white sauce.
