Filter Coffee (South Indian Style)

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
