3. Return to a gentle heat for 1 min to cook the cornflour, still stirring.

4. Remove from the heat again and add a quarter of the milk and beat vigorously until completely smooth, mixing well with the roux.

5. Return to the heat and add remainder of the milk stirring all the time on a medium heat until the mixture starts to bubble.
