Heat butter in a pan,add garlic if using then add the flour & in low flame fry till raw smell disappears & mixture starts to bubble slightly.
Reduce the flame and add the hot milk, seasonings,bay leaf & nutmeg whisk until well incorporated (to avoid lumps or the sauce sticking to the bottom of the pan).
Cook till the sauce thickens to the desired consistency.You can add heavy cream for extra richness for your sauce.
Switch off the stove,remove the bay leaf,now your sauce is ready for use.

a) Some times you sauce may become lumps if not whisked properly,in that case at the end strain the sauce to get a smooth lump free sauce
