Chukku Kapi / Sukku Malli Coffee is one of the medicinal coffee which helps to cure Cold and Flu. In my younger days, my mom used to prepare and store this sukku malli powder and weekly once she prepares the coffee and give to us. If we are down with cold / flu, this sukku coffee helps in reducing the severity of cold as it has dry ginger, pepper which are all good for health. I always take a cup of sukku coffe when i am down with headache / cold. My mom used to add black basil leaves (Karum thulasi) while preparing coffee. Also we don't add milk generally. But if you want you can also add little milk. Lets see how we need to prepare this healthy coffee!

Method To Prepare Sukku Coffee Powder
  1. Take the sukku (dry ginger) and break it into small pieces. Take the pieces in  the mixer and grind it to a fine smooth powder. We can also use store bought dry ginger powder. But I personally prefer to use the whole dry ginger and powder it as it will be more fresh than the store bought powder. The store bought powder are sometimes old stock and you don't have the same freshness

  2. Heat a pan and add coriander seeds along with pepper and cumin seeds and dry fry them for 2 minutes. Cool the ingredients and add it to the mixer

  3. Grind the cooled ingredients to a fine powder. Mix the ground powder and the dry ginger powder and sieve it to remove the lumps. Now the sukku malli powder is ready. Once cooled, store the sukku malli powder in an air tight container and we can keep it for atleast 3 months.

  4. Let's Prepare the Sukku Coffee 
  5. Add 2 cups of water in a sauce pan and add broken palm jaggery and allow the jaggery dissolve completely. Add 1 teaspoon of sukku malli powder and allow it to boil for 5 minutes in low flame. Then strain the sukku malli coffee using a strainer to remove any rough particles




Serve the hot and spicy Sukku Coffee. Be generous in adding ghee to sukku coffee before serving.
