Desi-style cappuccino

I was never much of a caffeine addict but an Emirates flight changed everything. I was very excited about the trip and the opportunity to fly with Emirates and to stop over at Dubai. I had heard great things about Emirates but little did I expect to see chicken served in a Vegan meal :-O. I let that go and then I noticed that the breakfast that they served consisted of 3 vegetable entrées – Rajma, some kind of a kurma and badly made peas..After the second meal, I decided to stick to croissant and coffee for the rest of the journey and I followed the same rule on the return trip as well. Though the Emirates experience was awful in more ways than one, the one thing that I learned was to appreciate coffee and led me to learn how to make Cappuccino the desi-way to feed my caffeine cravings. So for all you coffee lovers, here’s my recipe for Desi Cappuccino!
