Turkish Coffee with Milk

(Sutlu Turk Kahvesi)

Turkish Coffee with Milk
This coffee is my grandmother's morning coffee. I loved to drink it with her when I was a kid, and I still enjoy it today.

For this coffee you'll need to broil 100 ml of homogenized (whole) milk in a small pot to get a layer of skin on the surface. Grab it with a spoon, along with a few tablespoons of milk, and place in a small glass cup or mug. Then make plain (no sugar) Turkish Coffee for one person. Pour it in over the milk.

If you like to have some sugar with your morning coffee, the Turkish way to do it is this: Take 2 sugar cubes. The way to use the sugar is, before taking a sip, put one cube in your cheek and start drinking. The sugar will melt in your mouth. When it is gone, replace with the second cube. We call this style "sugar on the side" ("yandan sekerli" or "kirtlama").
