Slice the potatoes into very thin circles. Slice the onions into thin strips. Then, make an alternate layer of potatoes and cheddar cheese along with a dash of spices and onions. Repeat this procedure till the casserole gets filled up to at least ¾ level. Top this with some amount of cheese. Pour milk in the casserole till it gets filled up to at least ½ of the height of the vessel. Bake this at around 350° F, for 1½ hours. Cook till it turns tender.
