Cardamom Latte

Cardamom is one spice that I am becoming used to.Until a few months back,I could not stand the aroma of this wonderful spice.That is not a good thing you know,especially when you are attending some function or wedding or during festivals at home,it is so embarrassing to say no to a delicacy just because it has cardamom in it.

Then I thought why not get used to it and then started adding tiny doses of it in my cooking and now I can gladly say I was bold enough to prepare this cardamom infused latte from Barathi's blog and I did enjoy it!!!The best part is,it just takes couple of minutes to prepare this in the microwave!!

Here is what you have to do:

In a microwave safe mug take a
cup of milk
1 teaspoon of instant coffee powder,1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder,sugar to taste
Microwave for 1 minute on medium heat
Mix well
and microwave again for 30 seconds or till steamed.
Let it stand for 30 seconds.
Strain and sip!

Your aromatic cardamom infused latte is ready!!!!

Here is a small tip.If you like to use cardamom powder in your cooking,you can prepare small batches and store them in an airtight container.When you powder the cardamom seeds add a teaspoon of sugar to get a fine powder and its much easier to powder cardamom this way than grinding it alone.

Happy cooking...
