  1. Hi , would like to try your recipe , can you help on these 2 query . Can the butter be replaced with cold pressed oil ? and what role does corn flour play in this , can it be substituted or be skipped please. Thank you in advance .

    1. Hi Anita, Yes, you can use cold-pressed oil. In fact, it can be avoided too. Butter or oil is added just to give shine to the sauce. And cornflour is used as a thickening agent. In place of cornflour, you can use rice flour or tapioca flour. Do share youe feedback as to what all you finally used and how did it turn out.
