Khurshid made mac and cheese for his family for Iftar quite some time ago...and it made me wanna make something similar. Went scour and found something which is rather easy to make.

Recipe after the jump

Baked Macaroni Cheese taken from

Ingredients (Béchamel sauce)
40g butter
40g plain flour
600ml full-cream milk
salt, pepper and nutmeg powder, to taste
1 egg yolk
160g grated Emmental, Comté, Cheddar, Gouda or other stringy cheese (I used cheap cheddar slices)
280g macaroni

Note: Recipe may be halved. Add more milk if sauce is too thick.

  1. Cook the macaroni in salted water according to package instructions.
  2. In the meantime, melt butter over low heat in a saucepan. 
  3. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spatula. Cook, stirring, for about 5 min utes, or until the mixture becomes bub bly and turns whitish. 
  4. Pour in cold milk, stir and season to taste. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring from time to time with the wooden spatula. 
  5. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes to cool. Stir in the egg yolk and half the cheese.
  6. Drain cooked macaroni. In a mixing bowl, combine the mac aroni and 3/4 of the béchamel sauce. Mix well and pour into a buttered, ovenproof dish. Top with remaining béchamel sauce and sprinkle over the remaining cheese. 
  7. Place on the top shelf of an oven preheated to 210ºC. Bake for around 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Serve warm. Serves 4-5 people for the full recipe. Two of us had trouble finishing the half recipe portion :P
