The viral whipped coffee…
What does Dalgona Coffee remind you of? I don’t think that needs any prompting. During the pandemic in 2020, along with the banana bread, what went the most viral was this frothy cup of coffee with two colors in it. A lot of the South Asian community wondered what was the big deal because it was so close to our style frothy coffee, which many call “Phitti hui Coffee”. Still, Dalgona became a literal household name. Since I am not a fan of cold drinks, I didn’t have it much, but Azza would make it when she needed a cold coffee fix. Rasha somehow prefers regular coffee with ice cubes in it rather than something like Dalgona which needs a little shaking… 😉
This is my second post under “Trending Recipes” for the Blogging Marathon #144, after the Korean Strawberry Milk. I prepared it hot, because like I mentioned, I am not into cold drinks as such. But if you want to make it cold, the process is the same, except you don’t need to boil the milk and you can simply top the whipped coffee with ice and cold milk. Due to the temperature variance plus the density variance – physics class 😀 – the coffee wouldn’t mix like it would slightly when hot milk is poured. Anyway, I don’t think I need to give a big lesson, when almost everyone on the face of the earth must have tried it during those times. 😀 Did you know Dalgona Coffee’s origin is Macau, even though it is more known as a South Korean drink? OK, so let me leave that here as general knowledge… 😉 Off to the recipe…
