Weather these days is very confusing here, at one time it is raining and the other, the sun is shining. Whenever I decide to cook something "rain special", it's dry and! Well, this time I'm here with this smooth and creamy recipe. I usually use white sauce in pasta recipes or baked recipes, but this time I tried white sauce with an Indian touch, by adding spices. This recipe is a good change, try it someday! Hope you like it!! Get the recipe here
