Dalgona Coffee

If you are a regular on Social Media you will know that Dalgona Coffee is trending, rather going viral. Images of this beautifully contrasting , frothy, beaten coffee sitting atop cold milk  are tempting those who see it to make their own version of it.

Some stick to the original recipe, while others add their own touch by garnishing it with chocolate chips or shavings. Others add chocolate syrup with still others add a splash of their preferred ‘spirit’ (Hic! Hic!)

Give it your own twist and come up with your personalized recipe. Here is the basic one;

Dalgona Coffee_Sirimiri

Ingredients:

2 Tea Spoons Instant Coffee (I used Nescafe)

2 Tea Spoons Sugar (I used regular sugar)

A splash of hot water (about 1 Tea Spoon)

Lots of Ice

Glass of your choice

Milk, of your choice.

(I used regular milk, you could use Skim / Full Cream/ Almond / Coconut Milk too)

Method:

Take a medium sized cup / vessel (I used a regular steel katori ) and add the instant coffee and sugar in it.

Add the hot water to this and start beating the sugar and coffee together using a spoon.

Take care to beat in the same direction as that will incorporate air and make this mix frothy.

After 10 minutes of continuous beating the mixture should start thickening and the color should start turning light.

Continue beating the mixture for some more time.

How will you know you are done? The Coffee + Sugar mixture will form soft peaks.

Take a glass. Fill 3/4th 0f it with ice cubes.

Pour Cold Milk over the ice, taking care not to fill the glass till the brim. Leave at least an inch of space on top.

Spoon the coffee froth on this cold milk.

You are done. Garnish it with your choice of topping, or leave it as it is.

Mix well and enjoy your delicious icy cold, Dalgona  Coffee!
