Amid the recent lockdown, 'Dalgona Coffee' is the latest challenge taking over social media.

What is Dalgona Coffee?

It's basically cold coffee with a fancy name which also happens to be a popular South Korean honeycomb candy.

In fact, some Indians feel it is inspired by 'beaten/whipped coffee' or 'phitti hui coffee' which we have been having in our homes since ages.

The word 'Dalgona' fascinated me so much that I immediately decided to give it a shot.

Two teaspoons of coffee powder, sugar and milk/warm water are the basic ingredients you will require to make it.

Before you try it, let me warn you, it's a very time consuming process. But when you see the result, it will be worth your efforts.

Here's how I made it!

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp coffee powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • A glass of milk
  • 2 tsp warm water
  • Ice cubes
  • Cocoa powder (optional)

Method

  • In a glass, take 2 tsps coffee powder, warm water and sugar.
  • Use a spoon/whisk/milk beater to whip the mixture well till it fluffs up like foam. This may take anything between 5 to 30 minutes depending on what you are using to beat the mixture.
  • To serve, add a few cubes of ice in a glass.
  • Add milk and top it with whipped coffee.
  • Add cocoa powder and serve.
