    Few years back, I knew pasta could be made the Indian way or using the white sauce. I became familiar with different kind of sauces only after I visited a several blogs.I have been trying and experimenting with different sauces since then. This recipe was partly taken from here. But then , I modified the ingredients and method to a extent to suit our taste. We enjoyed it for an early dinner yesterday evening.
