I could eliminate A,B for parallelism, however have doubt in tense that follows

Heating mixture until it will thickens. vs until it thickens.

(A) heat the mixture until it will thicken - tense error
(B) heat the mixture until it thickens - tense
(C) heating the mixture until it will thicken - tense problem
(D) heating the mixture until it thickens - both the errors are rectified in this sentence
(E) heating the mixture until it had thickened -tense problem

IMO D

D is the correct choice.

OE:
Avgolemono is a soup or sauce made by MIXING and HEATING. "Mixing" and "heating" are two steps in the same process and must be in the same format. Eliminate (A) and (B).

Choice (C) incorrectly changes to a future tense, and choice (E) incorrectly changes to the past perfect.

In general, when we want to describe a general process (an if/then situation that is true regardless of the time period, such as To achieve X, do Y or When it rains, my roof leaks), use the present tense.
