    4. Once it melts, add your flour and keep on mixing with a wooden spoon till it turns a bit brown.
    5. Now add 100 ml of milk and stir in the fastest speed with your wooden speed. This will help your sauce not to form any lumps.
    Note :- if you feel that the sauce is being over cooked then take it away from the stove and keep stirring.
    6. Once it becomes little bit like a paste, add another 100 ml of milk and start whisking it with a balloon whisk at the fastest speed for 1 min.
