Its winter in Mumbai.Time to bid au revoir to the fans and ACs.This is a famous french soup called "Soupe à l'oignon" and is famous all over the world. I tried this simple French onion soup in this weather and it turned out to be fantastic.

Add vegetable stock once the onion become brown.Add cornflour and let it boil for around half an hour.Keep stirring in between to avoid lumps.Once the miture boils well add croutons and cheeses on the top.
