Ingredients

  • Milk- 1.5 cups
  • Instant coffee powder- 1.5 tsp (adjust according to your taste)
  • Hot Water- 1.5 tbsp
  • Sugar- 3 tsp (adjust according to your taste)

Directions

  1. Add milk to a microwave safe mug and microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.
  2. Meanwhile, dissolve 1.5 tsp coffee powder in 1 tbsp hot water and set aside. This is called coffee decoction. I have used Narasu’s instant coffee (available in Indian grocery stores), you can use any brand: just make sure it dissolves in water completely.
  3. After 1 minute 30 seconds, remove the mug from the microwave and you will see that the milk has boiled and turned frothy as shown. Add sugar and stir.
  4. Add the prepared coffee decoction to the milk and stir. Optionally, you can make little extra decoction (1/2 tsp coffee powder in 1 tsp water) and add on top for stronger coffee and froth well. Serve hot. Super easy Instant Coffee is ready to make your day energetic.

Notes

  • Try to use full fat milk instead of 2% or skimmed milk for rich taste.
  • Adjust the quantity of coffee powder and milk according to the flavor of the coffee that you prefer (strong/ light).
  • Microwave times and power may vary: keep an eye on the milk after 1 minute 20 seconds.
