Notes

For thick white sauce you have to reduce the milk quantity and thinner sauce you have to add more milk. Finally check for salt and pepper and adjust accordingly. When you are preparing white sauce if it is lumpy can use blender to get a smooth sauce(easy way to get rid of lumps). The color will change if we boil the soup for longer time and taste also changes.
