    Take water in a big container first.

    First, warm 2 tbsps maida, 2 tsps olive oil, and 1 tsp butter in a pan.

    Roast the maida over a low flame until it begins to smell.

    Now, add 1 1/2 cup milk and whisk constantly, make sure the milk is cold.

    Stir continuously until the sauce starts to gradually thicken.

    Add 3 tbsps cheese, ¼ tsp mixed herbs, ¼ tsp chilli flakes, ¼ tsp salt, and mix well.

    Now, in a different pan, heat 3 tbsps of olive oil, 1 tbsp of butter, 3 cloves of garlic, ½ tbsp mixed herbs, and ½ tbsp chilli flakes in a sizeable wok.

    Cook the spices until they become fragrant over a low flame.

    Add 1 onion now, and cook until the onions start to sweat.

    Afterward, add 1½ cups of tomato puree and boil over medium heat until the puree gradually thickens.

    Add 2 tbsps tomato sauce, ½ tsp each of salt and chilli powder.

    Cook the sauce for a while more until it thickens.

    Now, blend the red sauce with the prepared white sauce.

    Now that the spaghetti sauce is pink, you can tell that it has changed colour.

    Pink sauce is ready for pasta.

    Add the cooked pasta and stir well.

    You can also include 3 tbsps of cheese, ¼ tsp of chilli flakes, and ¼ tsp of mixed herbs. Combine everything thoroughly.

    Eat the pasta with pink sauce, some additional cheese, and basil leaves on top.
