How To Make Greek Moussaka
1.) Peel and clean the potatoes. Then cut the potatoes in slices and the eggplants into long narrow slices. (See Pic)
2.) Season the eggplants with salt and set them aside for 45 minutes. Start frying the potatoes in a pan at a medium temperature (fry in extra virgin olive oil). Once the potatoes are fried, place them on kitchen paper to absorb and discard the oil.
Once melted, add the flour and slowly stir with a whisk constantly.
After 1 minute add the milk slowly (about 4 minutes). As soon as you add the milk, increase the temperature and stop cooking as soon as the mixture boils.
