How To Prevent Pasta From Sticking Together?
To prevent the pasta from sticking together after cooking, always keep the following points in mind.
Always cook pasta in a large pot with enough water.
Always add pasta to boiling salted water.
And after adding the pasta, keep stirring for at least 2-3 minutes, otherwise, they might start sticking.
If you are planning to serve pasta with a sauce, like this recipe, then you should never add oil to the boiling water. Otherwise, the sauce might not stick to the pasta later on. But if you are making a stirfry then you can add a little oil while boiling the pasta.
After draining the pasta, wash them with cold water. This way the cooking process will stop (they won’t overcook) and they won’t stick to each other.
How To Fix A Pasta Sauce That Is Too Thick?
While cooking if the white sauce becomes too thick then you can pour more milk or pasta water (the water in which the pasta was cooked) to thin it out.

Add pav bhaji masala and mix well.
After that pour milk into the pan, a little at a time while mixing continuously.
