Masala Kaapi - Indian Energy Drink

Kaapi3

I have been physically and mentally busy for the past few weeks and henceforth blogging has taken a back seat :(

Today I could hear my blog cry for some quick post and so did my energy crave for some boost. Went to the kitchen and quickly brewed a masala kaapi to rejuvenate myself and my blog :)

I enjoyed this version of typical Indian kaapi(Coffee) irrespective of my liking for coffee and tea. Hope you guys enjoy it too :)

Kaapi

Ingredients:

Milk - 1 cup
Coffee Decoction - 2 tblsp
Cardamom - 1
Cinnamon - 1/4 inch piece
Cloves - 2
Ginger - 1/4 inch grated
Pepper - 3
Sugar - 2 tsp

Kaapi1

Method:

Grind cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in the mixie.

Boil milk, add the ground masala and sugar to it and stir. Remove from flame and add freshly made coffee decoction and pour from one tumbler to the other until it foams ;)

Serve hot.

I tried the chill version of the same as well and liked it too :)

Lovely pictures. Never had masala coffee. Guess the filter kapi is a treat by itself, so have never tried anything with it.

Is this what the Bru coffee from South India is famous for?

I have to admit Nithya, I never dared to take photographs in Steel cutlery. That's because I thought they don't give out the best pics. But boy! I am totally wrong. That kaapi looks absolutely stunning and so damn traditional. The picture is so well shot that the steel cutlery actually makes it outstanding. Bravo!
