It is in March 2020. The world is hit by Covid 19 and dalgona coffee. Dalgona Coffee, a version of cold coffee that has the layer of coffee froth on iced milk. It is supposed to be mixed and sipped. Instant coffee powder, white granulated sugar and hot water are added in the same proportion and whisked, technically, 400 times and practically much more than that :). I had whisked the coffee and sugar mixture until it was thick and very light and technically had soft peaks. This whipped coffee definitely involves some muscle work and is therefore ideal to involve the family members who are all around due to lockdown.
Instant Coffee Powder: You can use any coffee powder of your choice. Even the flavored coffee powdered work great for making the whipped coffee. I have used hazelnut flavored coffee.
White Granulated Sugar: Dalgona Coffee calls for the 3 basic ingredients in the same proportion. As a result, one tablespoon of coffee powder is to make 1 glass of this coffee and the same is sweetened using 1 tbsp of sugar, which is not sweet enough for me. However, if I had added more sugar, the color of my coffee froth would have been light. Therefore I had added simple sugar syrup in the milk to make it appropriately sweet.
Hot Water: As such this whipped coffee calls for adding the whole of hot water initially while making the coffee. However, I have added hot water gradually. It makes things easier and better.
Milk: If looking for a vegan version, you can use almond milk to make the whipped coffee.
Ice: Adding ice cubes is totally optional. You can skip it if the milk is cold enough for your liking.
Personally I do not like coffee. Rather I love tea. And therefore there are a number of recipes to make chai on the blog. You can find the same here. However, there are a few coffee recipes too such as cold coffee milkshake, easy peasy cold coffee, frothy hot coffee without hand beating , etc.
Make it for your friends who love coffee and serve it to them with some marble cookies.
