How to Make Desi Espresso aka Beaten Coffee

  • Take coffee powder in a cup or bowl.
  • Add adequate sugar.
  • Pour 1/2 teaspoon water into it and start beating.
  • When you see it becoming thick, add a few drops of water and continue beating.
  • Make sure you don't add lots of water at once.
  • Keep adding water little by little and continue beating till it turns fluffy.
  • When the volume of coffee increases by a factor of three and the mix turns a few shades lighter, you can consider it done.
  • Scoop out a spoon or more of this mix and place in a cup.
  • Boil the milk with water and pour into the cup.
  • You can see the mix floating atop the cup.
  • Gently stir it with the spoon.
  • Sprinkle some cocoa powder or shaved chocolate for an extra flavour.
  • Serve hot and enjoy the frothy coffee.
