  • ½ cup Vegetable OR Chicken Broth
  • ½ cup Full Fat Milk
  • 3 tsp Minced Garlic
  • ¼ cup Finely Chopped Onions
  • 225 g Cold Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 6 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Salt To Taste
  • Pepper To Taste
  • 1 tbsp Finely Chopped Parsley


  • Stir together chicken broth, milk, garlic, and onions into a small saucepan.
  • Cook on medium heat until the mixture is reduced to half. It should take 10-12 minutes.
  • Cut cold butter into 1-inch cubes. Add 1 cube of butter to a medium-size saucepan and heat on medium heat until it melts.
  • Add all-purpose flour and mix it well with the butter. Cook until the mixture turns slightly brown (1-2 minutes). Stir continuously while cooking.
  • Now slowly pour the reduced chicken broth mixture over the flour and butter mixture and whisk continuously using a wire whisk.
  • Cook for a minute until the sauce slightly thickens.
  • Add the remaining butter to the pan and cook until the butter slightly melts and combines with the sauce. Stir frequently.
  • Note – Make sure the butter is chilled. It will bring down the temperature of the sauce and the sauce will not curdle when lemon juice is added to it.
  • Add lemon juice before the butter completely melts and cook the sauce for 1-2 minutes.
    Note – Add the lemon juice when the sauce is not very hot. If you add lemon juice to the hot sauce, it might curdle it.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add parsley and mix well. The sauce is ready. Use it as desired.
