C ~ Cheddar Cheese Sauce


Event: Blogging marathon #32
Theme: Condiments

Continuing with the same theme of street food / condiments, this simple yet flavorful cheese sauce represents my alphabet 'C'. I had earlier baked cinnamon rolls and being lucky, couldn't figure out for my life where the images of those rolls were. When my son saw me reshuffling recipes for the sake of letter 'C' and worrying a great deal about it, he asked me what the matter was. I started to explain the rules and themes of this BM, he casually mentioned to try something simple with cheese and so this was made for our pasta lunch that day. It hardly takes 5 minutes to prepare this yummy sauce and can be used to jazz up bland veggies or pasta or anything one prefers or this cheesy sauce can be used a dip for nacho chips.

Ingredients:
2 Tbsp all purpose flour / wheat flour
2 Tbsp butter
1.5 cups milk
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Salt & pepper to taste 

Method:
* Melt butter in a small non stick pan and turn off the stove.  
* Add flour, salt and pepper and combine well.
* Gradually add milk and whisk well to remove any lumps present. 
* Cook on low flame until it thickens while stirring continuously  
to avoid the mixture from clumping. Continue to cook for 3 - 4 minutes more. 
* Next, add the cheese and stir well to combine. taste and adjust the seasonings if required. Turn off the stove and use it immediately.
