Karupatti Coffee Recipe | Palm Jaggery Coffee with step by step photos .Karupatti coffee is one of the healthy and common street foods in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Even it is very popular over the beaches. A nice evening with some crunchy vadai and Karupatti Coffee is heaven.
Before marriage, I was not a great fan of karupatti coffee, but hubby is very fond of it and he asks me to prepare often. So I used to taste it whenever I prepare for him. This is when I started liking it and it goes very well with bajji or vadai. So give a try . Now let’s see how to prepare karupatti Coffee.
What is Karupatti or Palm Jaggery
Karupatti which is also known as Panna Vellam or Palm Jaggery is made from the extract of the Palm tree. It is often used as a natural sweetener in cakes, cookies, coffee, or any other sweets. It is rich in Iron and Potassium.
Karupatti is a very popular sweetener used these days in place of Sugar. It has a deep brown color and it varies from light brown to deep brown depending on the purity quality of the Palm Jaggery.
Karupatti Coffee with Milk
My Karupatti Coffee is a milk-less version. However, you may also prepare it with milk. Instead of Water, you will have to use Milk. The taste is good either way.
Vegan Karupatti Coffee
I always prefer the vegan version instead of the version with Milk. It is light and this is the traditional way of preparing Palm Jaggery Coffee.

I'm a big fan of karupatti coffee and often make them at home. In our home we used to make karupatti coffee with and without milk, but my favorite is always without milk. Total yum!!!
Super like, my favourite karupatti coffee, and i love without milk. Prefect drink while the weather is too cold outside, lovely sis.
I don’t drink coffee , and this coffee does sound very unique ! Coffee lovers treat !
A unique coffee indeed. I haven't heard of this but I am sure coffee lovers would appreciate it better.
I have tried this in Kerala but not in TN... Both Katangakaapi and katanchai... I know its acquired taste. Glad your started liking it. Nice.
That’s a very interesting coffee recipe. Using jaggery also sounds interesting. I will have to try this out some time soon to actually see how it tastes. Good one Sharmila.
Perfectly done.. looks tasty.
I have never tried coffee with jaggery but have heard a lot about it. Thanks fro sharing this recipe with us, will give it a try for sure.
Even I used to hate it before marriage, but then I started loving it. When we make the dishes we would love them, right? Your karupatti kaapi with sukku looks so delicious..
I've not tasted coffee with palm jaggery or any jaggery. I sure would love to try this one out. Looks delicious.
This is such a classic recipe Sharmila, very good one!..I have used karupatti is pongal etc never tried with coffee for myself.
I have heard a lot about this coffee, but never tastes it. I should try it when I come to India. I have some palm jaggery at home. I am becoming lactose intolerant and this will be a good coffee for me to try without milk.
Omg such a healthy way to make a refreshing coffee, The preparation looks so yummy !! I used to hate the distinct smell of karuppati too but love making sweets with them.
That's an interesting variation for coffee lovers to try.
I guess this is an acquired taste. I once made this when we got chukku karupatti and the kapi tasted awesome, Later when I made with regular karupatti and added chukku, it was not so great. The pics looks nice Sharmila.
