Notes

  1. I tried using besan in place of maida and it didn't change the taste. So If we are concerned with the usage of maida we can alternate with Wheat flour
  2. Vegetables are our choice. We can use only colored bell peppers and exclude carrot and corn
  3. Always cook the butter mixture in low flame that will ensure the sauce to be white without getting burnt
