South Indian filter coffee is a strong, milky coffee decoction that’s made with a stainless steel coffee filter, and served in a traditional dabarah and tumbler. In a country where instant coffee is the norm, this method of brewing coffee is often preferred, because it produces a much better cup than instant coffee. If you’re interested in making South Indian coffee at home, here’s how.
Step by Step Process:
- To begin making the South Indian Filter Coffee Recipe, we will first prepare the filter coffee decoction.
- In a coffee filter, add the coffee powder and pour hot boiling water (If using traditional stainless steel coffee filter) and allow the decoction to drip into the bottom jar.
- Or if you are making it in an electric coffee maker, pour room temperature water in the coffee machine and switch it on till the decoction is obtained.
- In a saucepan, bring the milk to boil along with sugar to taste. Use full fat creamy milk for best results.
- Pour the decoction coffee into the tumblers/ coffee cups. Pour in the hot milk and combined both by mixing well.
- Serve South Indian Filter Coffee Recipe along with Vegetable Rava Upma and South Indian Coconut Chutney for breakfast or with an evening snack like Mullu Murukku.
