Instructions

  • To make whole wheat white sauce, whisk the milk, wheat flour, black pepper powder, and salt. Stir until there are no lumps. Next, heat a tablespoon olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
  • Add chopped onion, garlic and saute for few minutes, until you smell the aromas coming through and the onions have softened.
  • Pour the milk mixture into the onion mixture and keep stirring continuously to cook the sauce. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens and has cooked through. Add the nutmeg powder and stir to combine.
  • Cook the sauce on medium heat, so the sauce thickens gradually with no lumps. Once done, turn off the heat, check the salt and spice levels and keep aside.
