In a little pan, bring the water to a boil.
While waiting, pour the freshly ground coffee into the coffee filter and level it out with a little squeeze of the back of a spoon.
Stack the coffee mug or tumbler on top of the coffee filter.
Pour the water slowly over the coffee powder in the filter once it has reached a boil. Coffee should brew for ten to fifteen minutes with the cover on.
Pour the milk into a stainless steel milk pot and heat it on a low to medium heat while stirring it occasionally to prevent burning.
Remove the used coffee powder and the coffee filter from the tumbler after the coffee has been prepared.
After adding the coffee to the milk pot, mix it thoroughly.
As needed, add sugar and stir until it dissolves.
To froth the coffee-milk mixture, take it off the heat and repeatedly pour it back and forth between the milk pot and tumbler.
To enjoy, pour the foamy coffee into a serving cup.
Note: A small stainless steel cup and saucer are typically used to serve South Indian filter coffee. Coffee is frequently served with a crunchy food, such as murukku or banana chips.
