Chinese White Sauce is very different from the mildly flavoured Continental version, although it also has a creamy consistency and a pleasant white colour.


This vibrant sauce is made of clear vegetable stock, thickened with cornflour and perked up with typical Oriental flavorings like ginger and garlic.


This luscious and tongue-tingling sauce is used in the preparation of exciting vegetable preparations such as Stir Fried Broccoli, Baby Corn with Almonds , Broccoli and Paneer in Lemon Coriander Sauce etc.

This is basically a simple and adaptable recipe that is like the one that I use. If you want to change the flavor profile, try a 3:1 mixture of ginger to garlic or garlic to ginger. Also, I make a basic Thai version with some lemongrass and fish sauce. And yes, the white sauce [ I use ginger to garlic 3:1] to make Chicken with mushrooms and vegtables. Moo Goo Gai Pan

Thanks for this recipe. I am looking forward to trying it. I am wondering whether it would work to make a traditional chicken almond ding . I just tried to make that dish from a different recipe but was disappointed because it turned out all brown and not like the beautiful green and white dish I remember having in good Chinese restaurants in my childhood.

   Hey Aly, Since our is a pure vegetarian food website, we have no idea how it would work out with chicken recipes. Do experiment and share with us your feedback. Happy cooking!

Thank you for posting this. Being allergic to soy sauce and gluten products in general,I needed to find out about an alternative when it comes to Chinese food, because it seems Chinese restaurants are usually the only ones open during the stupid holidays.
