I stumbled across a recipe for Indian Coffee quite accidentally today (you’ll understand when you see my next blog entry) and – considering I’ve almost never met a cup of coffee I didn’t love – I knew that I needed to try it… pronto.
Luckily for me, this recipe requires just three ingredients and maybe 10 minutes of your time. And, I promise you, it’s worth every minute! You can adjust the strength of the coffee flavor as well as the sweetness to your liking – I’ve decided that I prefer a ratio of 2 tbs sugar to 1 heaping tbs coffee to 10 oz of whole milk – but tweak it as you see fit!
My “froth” left a little something to be desired… I admit I might not have been as patient as I should have been with the prep on these. BUT! I’ll be practicing! Check out the beautiful foam on the coffees over at eCurry – this is my goal!

1 tablespoon instant coffee or coffee powder (the finer the ground the better)
8 – 10 ounces milk (preferably whole milk)
2 tablespoons sugar (or one tablespoon of sugar + a packet of sweetener)
Heat the milk until just under boiling and then simmer to keep warm.
In a mug, add the instant coffee and sugar. Add a teaspoon or less of the milk and vigorously mix with a spoon It will be dark, wet and crumbly at first, but keep mixing until the mixture turns lighter in color and resembles a thick mousse.
Stir in the heated milk and then pour the coffee back and forth between to containers (I used measuring cups) 6-8 times until your coffee is nice and frothy. Pour into a mug and enjoy the goodness!
