In Journey through cuisnes in the mega BM,I am sharing the popular filter coffee for F.Finding a Tamil word with letter F is so difficult,so used the English word.
Filter coffee is one of the refreshing hot beverage consumed in most parts of Tamilnadu especially in the morning times.
The South Indian filter coffee is made by mixing the boiling milk,sugar and freshly made decoction,obtained from ground coffee powder in a coffee filter.
The taste of filter coffee depends on the quality of coffee powder used.A good quality of coffee powder has 70-80% of coffee beans and 20-30% of chicory.
The filter coffee is served frothy in a tumbler and dabara which is a tradition of Tamilnadu.
Since we drink coffee very rarely I make it using the instant coffee powder also I don't have a coffee filter.A friend of mine shared her coffee filter and the steel glass to present it in a traditional way.Since we both don't have the traditional dabara,used a small bowl to serve it.
- The amount of decotion used here is for a medium strength coffee,add one more tsp if strong coffee is needed.
- Use slightly thick milk to get a nice taste and do not add too much of water while boiling.
- The amount of sugar depends on personal preference,but the coffee needs to be slightly on the bitter side.
