Sukku Kaapi | Ginger Coffee | Hot Indian Drink recipe


Sukku Kaapi is one of my comfort drinks when I am down with fever or cold or even during rainy days. It has a punch of ginger that gives the drink a good punch. Soothing in nature dry ginger is well known for its medicinal properties one such goodness is blood circulation with helps in skin and hair health. Since dry ginger has a strong taste adding too much of it can cause heart burn for some. So take care while taking this drink and a little goes a long way.

How do you like the props in the pictures? I used Amma's tea set with her personal journal and her glasses ;-)

To make Sukku Kaapi

Ingredients

Sukku podi/ dry ginger powder - 1 and  half tsp
Cardamom powder - a generous pinch
Palm candy/ Palm jaggery - 3 tsp (I used palm candy)
Hot Milk - 1 and 1/2 cup
Water - 1/4 cup

Method

Boil water in a milk pan and when the water is bubbling add the sukku podi/ dry ginger podi and when it boils for 2 minutes add the palm candy/ palm jaggery and wait for it to dissolve. Now add the hot milk to the pan and mix well, add cardamom powder if using. 

Serve hot in teacups and enjoy along with biscuits


Cooks Wisdom

- Dont add more than a tsp of ginger powder for 2 cups milk, as it can cause heartburn for some, a little goes a long way
- Add hot milk to the ginger syrup and not cold as the milk can split
- Serve hot and as soon as the sukku kappi is done.
- adding cardamom powder gives a sweet taste to the drink
- You can skip palm candy/ palm jaggery and use sugar instead
