First, take two tablespoons of powdered coffee and put into a container, add two tablespoons of sugar and pour three tablespoons of steaming hot water. Whip all the constituents till the mixture gets evenly frothy and thick.

Once, it becomes beige with the right consistency, pour it into a glass, filled with milk and ice cubes. Tada! The coffee is ready to be served.
