Author: Sangeetha Priya
  • Coriander Seeds - 1/2 Tbsp
  • Karupatti / Palm Sugar - 1/3 Cup
  • Dried Ginger Sukku Powder - 1 tsp or Fresh Ginger - 2 tsp ( or a small piece of sukku)
  • Cardamom Pods - 4 Numbers

  1. Crush the whole pepper, coriander seeds, dried ginger or powder (if using) and cardamom pods lightly as shown in the video.
  2. Add it to the boiling 1.5 cups of water.
  3. Then add crushed fresh ginger if using.
  4. Allow to boil for 5 minutes in medium flame.
  5. Then add Palm Sugar and allow to boil for 5 more minutes in medium flame.
  6. Adjust sugar at this stage and filter it and serve warm.
  7. I served it with Moong Dal Vada / Paruppu KilluVadai, if interested the recipe is HERE.
Recipe Notes
  1. I use stainless steel sauce / tea pan so it takes little more time to thicken compared to other utensils.
  2. Also you can add milk to this Coffee/ Kaapi .
  3. You can use 2 cloves for this recipe.
  4. My MIL sometimes brings Instant Sukku Coffee Powder (available in stores), by chance if you have it you can add 1/2 tsp to this recipe.
  5. Karupatti stays fresh in room temperature for several days so whenever I need it I break the necessary stuff and store remaining in well sealed cover.
  6. Or break the entire thing roughly and store it in ziploc or air tight container for future use (amma do that).
