Even when you load a white sauce based recipe with healthy veggies and other nutritious ingredients, there is still a niggling concern about the amount of butter and refined flour that goes into the white sauce. Not any more! Here is a delectable Low-Calorie White Sauce made with just one teaspoon of low-fat butter and whole wheat flour instead of maida. Cauliflower purée along with low-fat milk imparts a luscious creaminess to the sauce, making it just as good as the authentic recipe. Use this guilt-free white sauce to make your favourite international dishes.
- Combine the cauliflower and 2 cups of water in a deep non-stick pan and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 7 to 8 minutes or till the cauliflower softens and the water has almost evaporated. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Blend the cauliflower (along with the little water remaining) in a mixer to a smooth purée and strain it using a strainer. Keep aside.
- Heat the butter in a broad non-stick pan, add the whole wheat flour and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds or till the wheat flour turns light brown in colour.
- Add the milk and cauliflower purée, mix well using a whisk till no lumps remain and bring to boil.
- Add the salt and pepper, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally.
- Use as required.
