  • Then put the all purpose flour in it and sauté for 3-4 minutes. 
  • Now add the milk slowly to the pan, in small quantities, so that lumps are not formed. 
  • Once the entire quantity of milk is added, add warm water to the pan and stir well.
  • Then add 25 grams of grated cheese, salt to taste and freshly ground pepper to the pan and stir well. 
  • Stir till the white sauce starts bubbling and boiling. 
  • Now keep the previously boiled veggies in a square baking dish, and pour the sauce on top of it till it’s completely covered.
  • Grate 30 grams of cheese on top of the covered veggies. 
  • Bake in an oven on Convection mode for 12 minutes at 200 C.
  • In case the texture is too liquid, refrigerate the dish for 20 minutes after taking it out from the oven and then garnish, else if the consistency is perfectly creamy then garnish it right away with chilli flakes and oregano.
  • Serve hot with a side of garlic bread!
