Indian Cappuccino | Hand Beaten Coffee | Two ways – Hot Cappuccino & Hot Chocolate Cappuccino

People’s preference for either tea or coffee is rooted in their genes. Being a Pahadi, Chai is like a drug to us – “One cuppa chai is all we need”.

Beaten coffee is very different from the regular coffee which we make using instant coffee powders. This coffee is deliciously creamy, rich and frothy. I am not a big fan of coffee but I had beaten coffee at my friend’s place and I loved it.

Thank you, Isha Dabral for this wonderful beaten coffee recipe.

The reason it is called Beaten Coffee as the process involves beating the coffee and sugar mixture to incorporate air into it. When hot milk is added to this frothy coffee mixture, it releases air making a thick froth on top of the cup.

The process of beating the mixture though takes a good 20 minutes if using your hands. I used hand blender to beat my coffee mixture and all it takes is 5 minutes for it to reach the perfect light and foamy consistency and the taste is just perfect and no muscle work.
