Creamy Vegetable Soup

I love soups and being a vegetarian is quite helpful while making soups. You don't have keep them simmering over the stove for a long time to get the exact taste. You have the convenience of pressure cooking the veggies to get a quick and healthy soup within minutes. what more it is quite nutritious too as the veggies are not cooked for a long time. Here is one such recipe.

Creamy Vegetable Soup
Mixed vegetables – 2 cups (I used French beans, carrots, potato, and cabbage)
Onion – 1
Corn flour or All purpose flour (maida) – 1 ½ tbsp
Water – 3 cups
Milk – 1 cups
Butter – 2 tbsp
Grated cheese – to serve
Salt – to taste
Chop the vegetables and onions finely. To prepare Roux mix the flour and milk together into a smooth paste. See to that there are no lumps.
In a sauce pan heat the butter, add the onions and fry for a minute. Now add the vegetables and fry again for 2-3 minutes. Add water and cook till the vegetables are soft. Add the flour and milk mixture (Roux) to the vegetables. Add salt and cook for 5 minutes. Serve hot with grated cheese on top.
Replace butter with olive oil if you conscious of the fat.
