Lasagna is an Italian dish made with layers of bread, vegetables and cheese. I tried making lasagna with my brother for the first time in 2021. It turned out to be delicious!

Making a perfect lasagna takes a lot of time but the end result is definitely worth the effort. Today, I will be sharing the recipe to make this exotic dish.

To make a lasagna, we need the following ingredients:

1. Butter 2 tbsp

2. Refined wheat flour (maida) 1 tbsp

3. Milk 1 cup

4. Oregano 4 tbsp

5. Salt 2 tbsp

6. Cheese 1 cube

7. Garlic 1.5 tbsp

8. Onion Gravy 1 cup

9. Tomato Gravy 1 cup

10. Red Chilli Powder 1 tbsp

11. Carrot 1 cup

12. Capsicum 3.5 cup

13. Red Sauce 1 cup

14. White Sauce 1 cup

15. Cabbage Leaves

We need to begin the recipe by making the sauces for the lasagna.

To make the white sauce, first we need to take a pan and put 1 tbsp butter in it. Next, we need to add 1 tbsp refined wheat flour or maida and roast it on low flame. Once the butter and flour is mixed well, we need to add 1 cup milk to the mixture. Top it off with 1 tbsp salt and oregano and our white sauce is ready.

To make the red sauce, we need to take a fresh pan and add 1 tbsp butter to it. We need to allow it to melt in low flame before adding 1.5 tbsp garlic, 1 cup onion gravy, 1 cup tomato gravy, salt per taste, 1 tbsp red chilli powder and oregano. Once everything is mixed well, we will add some water and our red sauce is ready. 

Once our sauces are prepared, we will need to prepare our vegetable toppings. In another pan, first we need to add 1 tbsp butter and melt it on low flame. To the butter, we need to add 1⁄2 cup chopped carrot, 3⁄4 cup capsicum, salt as per taste and 1⁄2 tbsp of oregano. Mixing everything together will create nice roasted vegetable toppings.

Finally, we need to arrange the layers of the lasagna. We will take a bowl, add 1 tbsp red sauce and spread it evenly. Then we will add white sauce over the red sauce and spread that as well. Next, we will add the vegetable mixture and spread that over the sauces. Over the vegetables, we need to add the cabbage leaves. We will cover all the layers with the bread before adding some more red and white sauce over it. The next layer will be cheese. We will cover the layer again with the bread and repeat the process for as many layers as we want. Finally we need to sprinkle some oregano over the final layer and bake it. 

Serve it fresh and hot and enjoy delicious lasagna!
