Broccoli In ‘White’ Sauce


  • ½ medium sized cauliflower
  • 250 gms broccoli, broken into florets
  • ½ thinly sliced leek
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 1 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • homemade khakhra bits to sprinkle


Steam the cauliflower and blend half of it into a paste. Add salt, pepper and oregano to make ‘white sauce’. In a pan, sauté the leek until softened (add a little water if necessary). Add the white sauce, and 1 cup water and bring to boil. Add the broccoli and remaining cauliflower, season with basil. Take it off the hob once the sauce is a little thick and the broccoli tender. Sprinkle with broken bits of khakhra and serve.
