Creamy Onion Soup

This is a simple onion soup which looks creamy but is actually creamless.I made use of milk to make this though a combo of milk and half and half works fully well as well.

White onions: 2 big finely chopped
Butter: 2 tbsp
All Purpose Flour: 1 tbsp
Milk : 3/4 -1 cup

Salt,Pepper,Nutmeg : as per taste

In a thick bottomed pan,melt butter and then add onions.Saute till the raw smell goes for about 2 minutes.They should not turn brown.Stir in flour ,mix well and then add milk.Bring to a boil,then reduce to a simmer and let it cook for about 25 minutes till the milk is reduced to a creamy consistency.You can add more milk or half and half and continue simmering till your consistency is reached.Stir in and adjust salt,pepper and nutmeg.Serve preferably warm or depending on weather,you can chill it in fridge where it sourt of sets more and becomes all the more creamy and looks set like a pudding.

A simple non fussy soup with the normally available ingredients and perfect for hot hotter hottest noons and chilly and rainy evenings.Well, thats the weather in Bangalore these days.This soup is also a perfect entry to NCR:Onions hosted this time at TinnedTomatoes.
