Sukku malli thanni
I learnt this sukku malli kaapi / dry ginger coriander seeds coffee from my MIL.  I make this at least once in a week, specially in weekends. We have this in evening. Its a healthy alternative for our regular coffee and tea. 

 If you prefer to have this in the morning, use ginger/ inji instead of dry ginger/sukku. You can grind and make chukku malli powder at home and use it whenever needed but I prefer to make it fresh. This sukku malli kaapi has so many health benefits.  It increases the appetite, improves digestion and equilizes the bile salts in our body. Lets see how to make this health drink at home easily in 2 steps !
Watch the video too. 

  • Coriander seeds – 1.5 tbsp
  • Dry ginger – 2 inch piece
  • Karuppatti / Palm jaggery / Jaggery – 2 tbsp (adjust )
  • Lemon juice – Few drops
  • Honey – 1 tsp (optional)
  • Take the coriander seeds & dry ginger in a mixer and grind it coarse.sukku malli kaapi
  • Add 2 cups of water to the ground mixture. Now add the powdered karuppati /palm sugar and boil it till the water gets reduced to half in quantity. i.e 1 cup. sukku malli kaapi
  • Strain it and add few drops of lemon juice.(check for sweetness and add honey if necessary)sukku malli kaapi
Enjoy drinking hot !!
