Now take the cooked carrots with some boiled water into a grinder and grind it to make a smooth carrot puree. Take another sauce pan, heat it.

Add 1 teaspoon butter to the pan, cook till the butter melts. Add the flour and stirr and mix with the butter. Make sure there is no lumps in the flour.

Now add the carrot puree to the pan and mix with the flour butter mixture. Add 1cup of milk to the pan, and let the mixture boil for 5-10 mintues.

Stirr continously to prevent the soup buring at the bottom. Turn off the heat and serve the hot soup with some fresh cream on the top.
