Question Mac 'N Cheese Ingredient

I am trying a new M 'n C recipe tonight and it calls for 1 cup of dry milk, 1/4 C flour and 2 C water. I do not have dry milk. Can someone explain to me the purpose of those three ingredients? Can I just put some milk in and call it good? Guess I could stick to my tried and true recipe, but I love trying new ones. Any help appreciated. Betsy.

Use two cups of milk to replace the milk powder and water.

There is usually about a 1/4 cup of butter to go with that recipe. The butte and flour make a roux an the addition of the milk makes a white sauce. Then you add the cheese...
