This recipe is an inspiration from Nita Mehta's recipe, which I read in her book. I have seen many recipes using all purpose flour, butter or oil for making the white sauce and I didn't want to try that way. Then I saw one of the recipes in her book which included preparation of white sauce in it and I liked the idea very much. It was making use of wheat flour, no butter or oil and simple ingredients. So I thought of making the white sauce in a similar way and to add some veggies in it. I have used Cauliflower and Bell Pepper here. The sauce came out really good, very spicy and flavourful too.
1.5 cup Cauliflower florets
1 Bell pepper chopped (Use any veggies you prefer)
1 tsp Oil
For White Sauce:
1/2 of an Onion, finely chopped
1/4 tsp Ginger Garlic paste (Original recipe had only Ginger paste)
1.5 tbsp Wheat flour
1-2 tsp chopped Coriander leaves
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Red chilli flakes
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Tomato ketchup
Mix all the ingredients under For White Sauce in a bowl and whisk so as to get a smooth paste.Keep it aside.
Put the cauliflower florets and bell pepper in microwave safe bowl. Cook for about 4-5 minutes in microwave. Heat oil in a pan. Add the cooked cauliflower and bell pepper in it. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Stir fry so that the vegetables get slight brown. Keep them aside.
In the same pan, add the white sauce paste and cook on medium flame. Stir continuously until you get a saucy consistency. Add the vegetables to this. Mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve hot with steamed rice or any bread.
