Dish: Dip or Sauce
One of the most used sauces in the kitchen is the bechamel sauce, it is used to prepare many recipes such as cannelloni, lasagna, tiger mussels.... It is also the base to elaborate the famous croquettes (although in this case the proportions of the ingredients vary a little).
Basically the bechamel sauce is made from a roux, which means flour fried in a fatty matter (in this case butter or margarine) and then milk is added until a smooth and light cream is obtained.
The trick for a bechamel sauce to be perfect and without lumps is that when you add the milk, it must be hot (not boiling) so that it perfectly melts the roux and thus prevents lumps from forming.
