Serves 4

3 tbsp butter
1 onion - sliced very finely (1 cup)

salt to taste black pepper powder to taste
4 cups stock (given below)

6-7 peppercorns (saboot kali mirch)
4 cups water

4 tbsp grated Cheddar cheese
0.5 tsp mustard powder
2 garlic bread slices or

To prepare the stock, boil all ingredients of the stock with 4 cups water. Cook covered for 10-15 minutes on low heat. Let it cool. Strain through a sieve. Keep the clear stock aside.

Heat butter in a clean, heavy bottomed deep pan. Fry the onions and garlic over a moderately low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until well browned. Do not let the onions burn.

Add the flour and cook for 1 minute on low heat.

Add the stock gradually, stirring continuously. Boil.

Add salt and pepper, and simmer for 5 minutes. Keep soup aside.

For cheese toast, mix the mustard powder and cheese together in a small bowl. Spread over the toasted garlic bread slices or regular bread. Grill the toasted slices in the hot oven for 2-3 minutes. Cut each garlic bread into 2 pieces or regular bread into 4 squares.

Serve steaming hot soup with one piece of cheese toast floating on top in each serving.
