Ghutti Coffee

When my sister (didi) and I were teenagers, back in Moscow, we used to have these "bhaiyas" visit often - a couple of times a month. These "bhaiyas" were college students in Moscow that Mom-Pop seemed to know somehow through their connections back in India. When they would come over, we would always have this Ghutti coffee (beaten up coffee). Really frothy and tastes so different from the regular coffee.

Ghutti Coffee

1 tspn Nescafe instant coffee granules
2 tspn sugar (adjust for your taste)
1 tablespoon warm water
1 cup milk (I use 1% low fat lactaid, if you are using higher fat milk then you might need to mix it with some water for better coffee consistency)

Instant Coffee and Sugar

1. Add coffee and sugar to a cup. Add the warm water and start stirring with a spoon vigorously. Keep stirring for a couple of minutes, the color of the mix will change to a light brown from a dark dark brown.

2. Heat milk in the microwave in a separate cup, and pour it from top into the stirred up coffee cup. Mix slowly so that froth retains itself.
