My Notes:

  • If you feel its is little spicy, then add 3/4 tsp for each cup.
  • Usually sukku coffee is made only with water, but if you prefer you can have it with half and half milk, water.
  • You can store the homemade sukku coffee powder upto 2-3 months.
  • Actually they use palm sugar(karupatti) for sukku coffee. I dont have it so have used the substitute for it as it works well.
