NZ Black Coffee the Kerala Way


I love black coffee. especially with palm jaggery. es especially with a dollop of ghee in it. have you tried it this way? pl do. it's simple, honest and absolutely charming. i always take the last sip of it with a streak of disappointment. and i always want more...

I've used the NZ Fairtrade coffee powder my bro got for me. brew it the normal way. sweeten it with the bits of palm jaggery as suits you and drop that dollop finally after you've served it in a cup. enjoy the zing! mighty pals :)

Is it written on packages which jaggery is palm jaggery? Somehow I never looked at that..
Anyway, coffee with ghee?? :O I really can't imagine that..

I have never had coffee with palm jaggery, that idea is now stuck in my head and I can't wait till tomorrow morning to try it out! I might skip on the ghee though. Oh well, maybe I will try it once, I might like it!

I'll have to try the coffee that way sounds interesting!

kitchenmorph said...

medeja: it's written palm jaggery on the cover itself. it tastes deeper than normal jaggery. even i couldn imagine till i tried :)

jun: even i said eewwww...the first time i heard ghee in coffee. but i liked it so much. did you try it?

marymeals: it's tasty too! thank you!

Medeja said...

If only shops in Australia have it. Haven't seen here many kinds of jaggery yet :)

Lisa said...

i love black coffee (or coffee in general) and love it when the aroma of coffee brewing fills the entire house. i would still like to know how you brewed your coffee, could you detail that ?

Suchi said...

looks divine- will love to get a cup of this coffee!

kitchenmorph said...

med: we don have so many things that aussie stores have. no one has it all buddy :P

sis: detail?? well the same way you brew it to chase the onakka meen stink from the apt...just add jaggery to it and ghee...that's all haha. love you.

suchi: why don you hop over here...we can have together and discuss blogosphere at length...:)

Hey thanks for taking a look at my blog,I am glad you did,you lead me to yours and this coffee...I need a caffeine fix mid morning and early evening,I will take coffee then :)I am not sure I would take the ghee in my coffee,palm jaggery-Yes I am curious now,and will look for it in the stores. Is this instant coffee ??? I am reading your other posts and loved the cassava (sp?)too :) and the pictures and the link to the artist.Cheers!!! I am following your blog :)

kitchenmorph said...

thank you K. don try it with instant coffee. it works only for the south indian nadan coffee or the traditional one. you get it everywhere. but do try it with ghee. everyone's been feeling grossed out but it's really nice.
