So people have been telling me to start a food blog, my sister's (Nameeta) team at work were even discussing it during one of their meetings... how cool is that. Well, here I am with my very first recipe post and I hope you all enjoy the food that is gonna turn up here regularly.
Macaroni and Cheese
This is some major comfort food, its easy to make, you can't really go wrong and it never goes to waste. So let's begin...
Boil your macaroni till it is just right (don't overcook it) and drain it in a colander.
|Heat bout 2 to 3 Tbs of butter on low flame.|
|Drop in a heaped Tbs of flour (maida) and keep stirring.|
|Add a cup and a half of milk, and keep stirring so that no lumps are formed. You gotta work fast here on low flame, cause the sauce thickens quickly. This sauce with a pinch of salt and pepper is what you call a basic white sauce.|
|Remove the vessel from the flame and drop in bout half a cup of shredded cheddar cheese. The cheese will melt in the heat of the sauce.|
|Once the cheese has melted, add salt, pepper and oregano.|
|I had some ham and salami at home, so I chopped them up and added them to the cheesy sauce.|
|Place the drained macaroni in your baking dish.|
|Add the cheesy white sauce to the macaroni, just pour it in...|
|Stir the whole thing, we want the sauce to cover everything.... so mix it all up a few times.|
|Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese over the dish before sticking it into the oven. See, I was lazy and just tore off a few pieces and placed them here and there, don't do that... please. We want a nice even baked look.|
|Settle down near the oven with your book while you wait...|
