(Whipped Coffee)

Jump to recipe ↓

Dalgona coffee is a trending beverage which became viral in all social media, especially after the 2020 total lock down due to Corona Virus Pandemic. It is actually quite similar to whipped coffee that has been made in India for ages. I read in the internet that a Korean actor tasted the whipped coffee found its taste similar to a Korean toffee candy called Dalgona. He put it up in his social media and it became viral.

In our website whatsapp group, we had a Dalgona coffee making challenge recently. That’s when I decided to make and post the recipe. Instant coffee powder and sugar is whipped up with some water until it becomes creamy. It is then served over chilled milk. In most recipes, I saw that sugar, coffee powder and hot water are taken in equal quantities. However, I found that to be too strong for our Indian taste buds. We are used to drinking our coffee sweet. So I increased the sugar. Also, I like to sweeten the milk. Let’s see the recipe now.
