It’s the weekend, and it’s -0 degrees outside, and all I want to do is sleep more till 10:00 am and create a delicious cup of Pakistan coffee when I wake up but I’m already wide awake so let’s start making this Pakistan coffee to keep us warm from this awful cold weather (thank God there’s coffee, lol).
This Pakistan coffee doesn’t take long to prepare. It uses ingredients probably you already have in your home.
Pakistanis prepare this fragrant coffee in large pots, constantly stirring and pouring from up high to create a frothy mixture. It’s a sociable activity – one that can be found throughout the local shops – and one that clicks through the rhythms of the day.
Pakistani Coffee with Cinnamon & Cardamom
- 3cups water
- 3cups milk
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 5 cardamom pods, cracked
- sugar, to taste
- 3Tbsp coffee grounds
- Crack open a few cardamom pods and toss them in a large pot, along with dark roast coffee, a cinnamon stick, milk, and some water. You can add the sugar now, too (that’s what I did), or you can let your guests add their own.
- Simmer for ten minutes. Ladle the liquid as it bubbles and bobs, pouring from up high to aerate the coffee mixture. Do this about twenty times. Strain the milky mixture and transfer to a pretty coffee pot. Pour into cups and serve with a cinnamon stick (to amp up the cute factor).
Enjoy your weekend everyone, and stay warm!
