With most preferred places of socializing being shut because of the nationwide lockdown, people are willing to try their hands-on cooking at home and Dalgona coffee is just a simple drink that requires just 3 ingredients – coffee powder, sugar, and milk and sparing some time (from the plenty of time we have due to the quarantine) to beat the coffee.

How to Make Dalgona Coffee


  • Instant coffee

  • Sugar

  • Hot water

  • A spoon (to whisk)

  • Milk 

For a single serving of Dalgona coffee, follow these simple steps:

First, add two tablespoons of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water, everything in the same quantity. (You must start with two tablespoons each, and scale up from there if required). Then beat the ingredients together in a bowl until it becomes thicker in consistency like a frothy cream.

You must use hot water so that the coffee and sugar dissolve better and faster. Beat until it becomes light brownish. Once the paste gets ready, take a glass and pour cold milk in it, leaving a 2-inches space for the frothy whipped cream to sit on the top of the milk.

With the help of a spoon, fill those 2 inches with the creamy layer. You can also sprinkle some cocoa powder to make it look visually appealing. Serve it cold and savor the taste! And don’t forget to click a picture and upload it on Instagram!
