Sukku Malli Coffee or Sukku Tea as its called is the one of the best home remedies used commonly in Tamil households. It aids in digestion, helps reduce cough and headache. Sukku is nothing but dry ginger. Dry ginger is supposed to have a lot of medicinal properties. Sukku Coffee – There is no coffee in it and I do not know why people called it coffee when it actually is a form of tea. I adapted my recipe based on the paper print.

Dry roast all the ingredients except ginger powder on a low flame until it smells very fragrant.

The cumin seeds and the coriander seeds will be very slightly brown once roasted. Remove from heat and set aside on a plate to cool.

Add in the dry ginger powder to the mixture. I like to use ginger powder as it blends easily. Grind all the ingredients together into a smooth powder. Sift the ground mixture twice. Store in an air tight container.

Use within a month. The mixture wont spoil for a long time but the fragrance diminishes over period of time.

    I loved the sukku mali coffee when I first tried in a restaurant here in Singapore. Your recipe yielded better coffee than the restaurant! Excellent!

    Just made this in a bigger batch after seeing how good it tasted! I just added turmeric, panangkalkandu, and thippili in addition while blending. It all came together beautifully in 10 minutes and is a perfect drink. Thanks a bunch! I never knew this was so easy to make at home.

    I don’t have dry ginger powder at home. So can i use fresh ginger instead of dry ginger powder? If that works then how much i use?

      “Kaalaiyil engi, kadumpagal sukku” is an old Tamizl saying. Hence this sukku malli tea should be consumed during day time like at around 3 or 4 pm. So to answer your question you should use sukku instead of engi for sukku malli tea. On the other hand you might want to use engi for “engi tea” that is good to consume in the morning preferrably. Please ignore my answer if you think otherwise.

    I give only 5 ml of this coffee to my kids during cough or serious cold. Wow. It works like a charm. I refer this as magic potion to my kids. Thank you so much for this recipe.

    I have sore throat now and going to try Sukku Kaapi today. I have Wusthof cleaver not impressed with it πŸ™ I’ve been looking for a good all purpose knife. Which Wusthof knife do you use?

      Hi Subbaiah, its rather strange that you do not like one of the best knives that’s available.
      I have a santoku knife.
      Cleaver is mainly used by chinese / asians and the way you handle the knife is itself an art.
      In youtube there are a lot of videos by Chef Martin Yan on how to handle a cleaver. May be that will help.

        Hi Suguna, Thank your for your prompt reply. Kaapi is working well for me. I decided to go with little extra cardamom. I felt I didn’t grind the powder fine enough. Will try finer powder next time.
        Wife recommended to a friend of hers. She has loved it too.

    Can I also add some ground coffee ( not instant) to it. I like some caffeine in my morning drink

    I tried this, but felt the proportion for pepper is eeally overpowering and too much. If we reduce 1 tbsp pepper corns to 1/2 tsp, then it would be better.
