|All purpose flour||3 Tablespoon|
|Curry powder||1 1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Black pepper||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Milk||2 Cup (32 tbs)|

1. Melt the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over moderate heat. Add the celery, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
2. Remove the pan from the heat, and blend in the flour, curry powder, salt, and pepper to make a paste. Gradually stir in the milk and water.
3. Return the mixture to the heat and stir constantly until it comes to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.
