-Melt the butter in a saucepan and add all the chopped veggies along with some salt, pepper and garlic powder if using instead of roasted garlic cloves. Saute for about 5 minutes on medium heat till they are cooked but not mushy. Add water just so that it covers the veggies completely. Bring this to a boil then lower the heat cover partially, let it simmer for 10 min or until the veggies are cooked.
-Allow it to cool down then transfer this into a blender along with milk, cheese and chilli flakes. Blend till smooth and creamy. If you want a thick soup use more cheese and less milk, for a thin soup-like ours use more milk and less cheese. You can always adjust these quantities as per your taste preferences too.
-Pour this back into the saucepan over low heat gradually stirring it at the same time, bring to a boil and switch off immediately (this is very important else the soup will curdle). Have it hot and fresh garnished with bread crumbs or chives or coriander leaves etc if desired along with some freshly grounded black pepper. You can also have it plain.
