Beaten Coffee | Indian Style
|3||teaspoon of instant coffee powder|
|3||teaspoon of granulated sugar|
|300||ml of milk|
|2-3 teaspoons of milk or water for beating coffee|
|drinking chocolate (optional)|
|1.||In a tall glass or jar, add coffee and sugar. Add few drops of water and using a hand-held beater, beat the coffee. the mixture will thicken and stay granulated. Add another 2-3 drops of water and repeat the process. Once you achieve a thick emulsion of coffee and sugar with very little or no visible sugar, stop beating. Initially the mixture will be very dark brown but as the beating continues, the mixture will lighten. You can do the exact same steps using your hand as well. That is how I initially used to do but now with advent of blenders the job is much easier and faster.|
|2.||The mixture is not runny but thick for perfect froth in the coffee. Boil milk and cinnamon stick (if using) in a pan and prepare the coffee cups or mugs by scooping about 1½ teaspoon of coffee mixture in each. Pour hot milk on top of mixture in each mug. Sprinkle some drinking chocolate and serve hot. I prefer letting the guests do their own mixing gently to enjoy the gorgeous froth which this coffee gives. But you can mix and serve as well.|
Recipe from the repertoire of family recipe.
You can use 150 ml of water and 150 ml of milk or less water and more milk or only milk. Milk makes it heavier beverage, so choose as per your preference. I usually do 50:50 milk and water.

Add cinnamon stick to get that Barista flavour right at home.
