- 1 liter of whole milk

- 1 tablespoon clarified butter

- 3 tablespoons multipurpose flour

- 1/4 tablespoon salt (adjust to taste)

- 1/4 tablespoon black pepper (to taste)

- 1/2 tablespoon nutmeg

- Optional: Meat or chicken broth for added richness

- 2 eggs


Step 1: Heating the Milk

Begin by placing one liter of whole milk on medium heat in a saucepan. Allow it to warm up without boiling, creating the perfect base for our creamy sauce.

Step 2: Infusing Flavors

Add a tablespoon of clarified butter to the warming milk, enhancing the richness of the sauce. Follow this with the incorporation of three tablespoons of multipurpose flour, stirring consistently to avoid lumps.

Step 3: Seasoning

To enhance the flavor profile, introduce a quarter tablespoon of salt, adjusting the quantity according to your preference. Sprinkle in a quarter tablespoon of black pepper for a touch of warmth. Elevate the taste with half a tablespoon of nutmeg, adding a unique and aromatic element to the sauce.

Step 4: Achieving Thickness

Stir the mixture continuously until the flour fully dissolves into the milk, resulting in a thick and smooth consistency. This process usually takes 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 5: Optional Enhancements

For those seeking an extra layer of flavor, consider adding meat or chicken broth to the sauce. This step is entirely optional but contributes to a more complex and savory profile.

Step 6: Perfecting the Texture

In a separate bowl, beat two eggs thoroughly. Once the sauce reaches the desired thickness, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly. Gradually incorporate the beaten eggs, ensuring a velvety and well-balanced texture.

Step 7: Creative Twist

For a creative variation, experiment with substituting eggs by layering mozzarella cheese on the surface of your dish before baking.

As we conclude this culinary journey, may the aromatic memories of our homemade Béchamel sauce linger in your kitchen, creating a symphony of flavors that echo the spirit of Ramadan. Let this recipe be a source of joy, bringing families together in shared moments of delight during iftar and suhoor. Wishing you a month filled with blessings, reflection, and joyous feasting. Ramadan Mubarak!
