Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 1 medium cauliflower cut into florets
  2. For the Sauce:
  3. 2tbsp butter
  4. ¼ cup plain all purpose flour ( I use Whole-Wheat Flour)
  5. 1 ¼ cups milk
  6. 115g cheddar cheese, grated ( I used Amul processed)
  7. Salt and ground black pepper


  1. Wash the cauliflower and put in a thick kadhai/wok. Cook on low flame till the cauliflower is tender. Transfer the florets to an ovenproof dish.
  2. To make the sauce: Though the traditional method is melting the butter and then stirring the flour I prefer to stir the butter in the flour then gently cook it, stirring constantly about 1 minute. The flour should not brown.
  3. Then I cool the pan fully and then gradually stir in the milk breaking all the lumps.
  4. Cook again on low heat, stirring, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil simmer gently for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Stir in three-quarters of the cheese and season (add the chilli powder here if using).
  6. Spoon the sauce over the boiled cauliflower.
  7. Add the rest of the cheese on top.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Notes: You can also grill it before serving.
