Sukku Malli Kappi with Karupatti / Dry Ginger coffee with Palm Jaggery

                           Yep, it was terribly hot few days back, but now the climate is very very pleasing. It is raining here in some parts of Tamil Nadu. We can see(in news) many waterfalls are flooded because of this rain. And the rain is because of a cyclone. Nature is always enchanting and great, if it didn't rain, the summer would have been horrible. Mother nature gives us what we need in right time. So, please start saving nature from plastics at least.

                         Because of the sudden change in climate, we get easily infected by cold. The magic drink made with dry ginger(sukku) , pepper (milagu), coriander seeds(malli) and tulsi, will be a great heal for the cold and flu and will reduce the severity also. The magic drink is sukku malli kappi made with karupatti / dry ginger coffee made with palm jaggery.

Prep time 5 mins
Cooking time 10-15 mins


4-5 inch long sized Dry Ginger (Sukku)
1 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
2 tbsp Palm Jaggery (Crushed) 
4 cups Water
9-10 nos Tulsi Leaves


1) Take all the ingredients dry ginger, coriander seeds, pepper, cumin seeds and crush it.

2) In a sauce pan pour water, add the palm jaggery and also the crushed ingredients along with it. Crush and add the tulsi also. Allow it to boil for 12 -15 minutes. The four cups of water should be reduced to two cups. Once done remove from the flame.
Then strain the impurities and serve the hot sukku kappi/ dry ginger coffee.

  • When this coffee is made for kids, then reduce the amount of dry ginger and pepper.
  • Adding of tulsi gives a good flavor.
  • Reducing the water to half the amount gives a strong coffee.
