Spaghetti in a cheesy Alfredo sauce with Ray cooking spray.
We all want to eat good food and stay healthy at the same time. How do you balance an ever growing palette and keeping the waistline in check? Ray cooking spray comes to your rescue in such times.
Ray cooking spray with its unique dispensing mechanism, enables you to use the optimum amount of oil in your cooking. This results in reduced consumption of oil/ghee by approximately 80% as tested and certified by laboratories. Each can offers around 700 -750 sprays which can cook the same quantity of food that in traditional cooking would require approximately 3 litres of oil.
I made this quick and delicious spaghetti using Ray Olive oil cooking spray.
- Ray olive oil cooking spray (3-4 sprays)
- 250 gms spaghetti
- 200 ml full cream milk
- 3 tbsp flour (maida)
- 6-7 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
- 150 gms grated processed cheese (optional)
- 1 tsp sugar
- 3-4 basil leaves
- 1 tsp each of pepper, oregano, dried thyme and chilli flakes
- Salt to taste
- Water as required.
- Boil the spaghetti using a few sprays of ray olive oil cooking spray and water until it’s cooked Al Dente. Strain and leave some of the starchy water aside.
#crazytip – To keep the pasta from sticking to each other spray some olive oil on top when it’s strained and warm and just lightly toss the spaghetti strands with it.
- In a bowl take the maida. Slowly add the milk while you stir the mixture with a hand whisk until there are no lumps remaining. Do note this needs to be done right before you start making the white sauce.
- In a pan spray 3-4 sprays of Ray olive oil cooking spray and let it get a little warm. Now add the chopped garlic and sauté for 30 seconds.
- Now add the milk and flour mixture, stirring continuously on a low flame, till no lumps remain.
- Add most of the grated cheese, salt, pepper, sugar, herbs, chilli flakes, cheese and mix well till the sauce develops a nice, thick consistency. Add the leftover starchy water as required. At this stage you can also remove the white sauce and store it in the fridge for a few days. This sauce can be used on bread, as a salad dressing, on savoury bakes and a lot of more things.
- Add the boiled and strained spaghetti and fold gently.
- Serve warm. Drizzle some leftover grated cheese and a few basil leaves on top.
Our verdict: We loved using Ray cooking spray!
The Dispense mechanism allows the spray to spread on the pan for cooking giving it complete coverage which is apt for cooking and reducing oil or ghee intake. This not only reduces the usage of oil/ghee but at the same time the taste is unchanged.
Ray cooking spray is currently available in Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Nagpur, Hyderabad and Delhi. They also plan to expand to markets in Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Chandigarh soon. You can opt to buy the product online or from the nearest retailer.
