Did you know that this classic soup in its original form dates back to the Roman times?! The classic soup experienced a renaissance of sorts thanks to French cuisine.
The trick here is to chop the onions really fine. Cheese thickens the broth while mustard imparts a heady, pungent flavour. French Onion Soup is always served by pouring ladles of soup over a cheese crouton placed in a bowl. This soup is delectable and worth trying. Enjoy!
For a 3 course meal after the soup serve Baked Crêpes with Capsicum Sauce , Stewed Green Tomatoes followed by Vanilla Ice-Cream with Flaming Sauce for dessert.
- Heat the butter in a kadhai/ wok, add the onions and sauté on a slow flame for 3 to 4 minutes, or till they turn golden brown in colour
- Add 4 cups of water, cheese and salt, mix well and allow it to boil on a high flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the pepper powder and mustard powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Toast the bread slices in a pop-up toaster.
- Cut each bread slice into 4 equal square pieces.
- Apply little butter on each bread piece and sprinkle a little cheese on top.
- Just before serving, place 2 cheese croutons in the centre of 4 individual bowls. Pour equal quantities of the soup in each bowl and serve immediately.
