Now a days who don't like to dig in sizzler platters or hog on pastas with different sauces. But do we know , what makes the main taste in these? Yes , you are right. The main taste makers are the sauces used in these dishes. These sauces enhance the flavour on any dish to many folds, whether it's sizzler/ barbecue or pasta type dishes. So today I have a very distinct flavour super tempting yet quick and easy onion and oregano sauce. Which I made to go with my pan fried chicken and sautéed veggies platter. And believe me it complimented the whole dish very well.
Step wise recipe is given below, hope you all too fall in love with it.
ONION AND OREGANO SAUCE
Time: max 10 mins
1 medium small onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp mayonnaise, I used low fat eggless homemade one
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/8 + tsp black pepper powder ( as per taste)
1/8 tsp chili flakes
1/8 tsp garlic powder ( optional)
1 tsp whole wheat flour
Salt to taste
Water or milk ( as per need)
Heat some oil in a small pan, add chopped onions. Let it fry till nice golden brown. Be careful , not to burn your onions otherwise the burnt smell will ruin your whole sauce.
Now add whole wheat flour and fry for few seconds.
Add mayonnaise followed by chili flakes, oregano, black pepper powder , garlic powder and salt. Mix well and add milk or water stirring constantly to avoid lump formation.
Now let it simmer for 2 mins and transfer to another bowl.
Your silky yummy sauce is ready to serve.
Either add pasta to this sauce or top it up on your sizzler platter. You can also use it as a dip for your favorite snacks.
You can adjust spices as per your taste preference.
Add milk / water as required to get sauce of right consistency. Sauce thickens on cooling so if needed you can dilute it with warm water/milk .
Hope you will give it a try and please don't forget to share your experience with me. Looking forward for your valuable comments and suggestions, they meant a lot.
