For those who grew up enjoying aromatic South Indian style Filter Coffee, making it is a no-brainer. However, for the rest of the world, it is a great alternative to brewing coffee in a standard coffee maker. The biggest difference in South Indian style filter coffee is the coffee. Coffee beans are blended with chicory, the root of a fragrant plant. Look out for the many different styles of manual drip coffee makers and coffee blends that are available in Indian grocery stores and even online.


Ground Coffee Beans – 5 Tbsp
Hot Water – 1/2 cup (or more as needed)
Milk – 1 1/2 cups for 2 servings
Sugar – to taste


Please see video


1. The first drip of the coffee is the most fragrant and flavorful. Subsequent drips will be less intense.
2. Add more water as needed to either make more coffee or dilute the original drip.
3. Make a large batch and keep the coffee decoction in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
