Filter Kaapi

Those were days when I just loved waking up to the aroma of "dikaashan" (coffee) . A cup of fresh filter coffee provided all the energy for a great start.

Guess even today nothing beats a cup of strong "Filter Kaapi".

1 cup of milk
3 tsp of finely ground coffee powder
1/2 cup boiling water
1tsp sugar


To Make the "dikashan", place the coffee powder in the filter and pour the boiling water into this. Keep this aside for 10 minutes. Boil the milk. Now mix in 2 - 3 tsp of dikashan and sugar. The trick to get cappuccino effect is to mix the coffee using two cups. Pour from one cup to another in a quick motion, however the cups should at least be 15 - 20 inches apart. Serve hot.

Tips: You can also use Nescafe Classico instant coffee powder that you get here. Boil a cup of milk for 1 minute. Once it boils, bring it to a second boil for another 30 seconds. Now add 1/2 tsp of Nescafe classico and 1tsp of sugar and mix the coffee using 2 cups. You will get a similar version of the filter kaapi... only instantly...:)
