I never thought that the gravy, which was given to the Soviet Union in catering meatballs, hedgehogs, vegetables, or even to garnish such as pasta or mashed potatoes, many will recall with such warmth and look for her a prescription for open spaces Internet.
But the fact remains. Every now and then glimpses of nostalgic memories, beginning with the words:
- And remember ...
I remember. But, the truth, I do not belong to the hot fans of this sauce. As for me, it has a few flat taste due to the fact that the spices in it is not used. However, it is this "plane" taste makes it absolutely universal, but still acceptable for food, even small children and the elderly.
Now this gravy relevance, as for me, does not lose (if the play with spices and herbs, of course).
So write down the recipe!
Sour sauces with tomato and onion were prepared based on the base 863 № sour cream sauce. Based on this framework, by the way, did a lot of Wow, what we used to call the gravy. Yes, and in its pure form in the home cooking he is pretty good (nothing harmful, as has already been written - even young children, although the elderly).
Prepare him a piece of cake - two hundred grams of sour cream take 10 grams of butter and 10 grams of flour. Flour slightly Passer unlubricated, cooled, mixed with oil at room temperature, put in a cream, brought to reflux, stirred, seasoned with salt and pepper. Pulping process was continued for about 3-5 minutes, boiled and then filtered through a sieve again and brought to a boil.
There are other variations of the base cream sauce, but they are called "white sauce with sour cream." They could also be the basis of gravy, but at least - too much trouble, it's just, well, two - this sauce increased the selling price of meals (and required large consumption products).

The browned flour, cooled to 60-70 ° C, poured into about a quarter of the required volume of broth and kneaded, gradually adding the liquid residues. Thereafter, the sauce sent parsley, celery, onion roots and cooked about 25-30 min. At the end of cooking to straighten out the taste with salt, black pepper peas and bay leaf. After cooking the sauce is filtered, triturated roots and is again brought to the boil.
