Indian coffee


Today we have so many different kinds and types of Coffee. In India Coffee was more a drink in the South of India and North was more dominated by the good old Indian Chai. But this habit has also been affected by the Globalisation. Now-a-days you can find Coffee Baristas everywhere, especially in the Metro Cities. Although if I am right, Chai is the drink which an Indian mostly relishes but Coffee is the in thing to be. 

Anyways, while I was growing up we used to have Coffee once in a while, cold Coffees for Summer and hot, Indian style hand made "Ghoti hoi Coffee" for winter days and mostly at the times of one day Cricket matches. Those used to be fun days. We used to all watch Cricket matches and the Coffee bowl used to be passed down from person to person to beat. 


What is Ghoti hoi Coffee, Ghotna (घो ट ना) means to beat. This Coffee is made when the instant Coffee powder is mixed with sugar and about 1/4 tsp of warm water and is beated until you get a mixture in Toffee colour and it looks frothy a very cappuccino style look. So here is what you will need for two people. 

Ingredients:

- 2 heaped tsp of instant Coffee
- 2 heaped tsp of sugar
- 1/4 tsp of warm water 
Beat this mixture either in a glass or a small steel bowl until it changes the colour. Keep it aside. 

- 11/2 cups of milk
- 1/4 cup of water. 
Boil the milk and water.

Method:

1. Beat the coffee and distribute it into 2 cups.
2. Boil the milk and water.
3. Add about 2 tbsp of the milk mixture to each cup. 
4. Mix it all well. 
5. Now pour the remaining hot milk to the cups from a bit high so that it forms some froths. 
6. Sprinkle some Coffee/Cocoa powder on the cups and serve hot.
