I emphasis on pure because Dad says that there can’t be a status of pure vegetarianism, it’s either you are or you are not! I remind him gently that some include eggs in vegetarian diet. And this has caused me being ever precarious to check the labels or ask couple of times to confirm if the dish offered contains eggs in disguise or not.
Necessity is the mother of creation, somebody said right! I finally resorted to finding out ways to taste those temptations. Since I don’t know how that original dish should taste, I conclude that whatever I created substituting the eggs, are the best created dishes! Talk about inflated egos
Coming to the recipe for today, I know many of you must be making this White sauce regularly. This was one of those first recipes I started making trying to replace egg based recipes. Works so very well all the time.
I use this for Burgers, Pastas. Previously I used to make this and store.
Basic Recipe for White Sauce:
All purpose flour / Maida – 1 cup
Milk – 3 cups
Butter 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Pepper powder – 1 tsp
Method to prepare:
Mix the flour with milk, add salt and pepper. The mix should be watery and without lumps.
When the sauce starts boiling remove, and allow it to cool before storing it in a bowl.
Once it cooled down, I pulsed it couple of times to get a smooth thick sauce.
I only added salt and pepper, but you can add as many other spices you want.
It really gave such a wonderful taste to the burgers!
