  • Preparing White Sauce

    • Now in a pan, add butter and let it heat for about 30 seconds, after that add onion to the pan and heat for another 2 minutes.
    • Add baby corn, mushrooms and capsicum and mix well.
    • Now add oregano and heat for 4-5 minutes.
    • Add flour to the pan, heat for a few seconds and then add salt, chilli flakes, milk and pepper to the mixture. Heat the sauce for at least 5-6 minutes. It will become thicker and creamier.
