• One of the latest trends to hit the foodie world is the dalgona coffee trend, and we have to admit, we’re definitely here for it!

    Dalgona coffee has long been popular (way before social media took off with it) and originated somewhere in the region of India, Pakistan and Macau, where it is called phenti hui (Hindi) / fetano (Bengali), loosely translated to “beaten coffee” or “whipped coffee”.

    This style of coffee is believed to have received the nickname dalgona for its resemblance to dalgona sponge candy, traditional street food from Korea.

    Here’s how to make dalgona coffee

    Whisk together 2 tablespoons instant coffee, 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons hot water until it becomes thick and creamy.

    Spoon the creamy mixture over cold or warm milk and sprinkle some cinnamon or cocoa on top.

    You can also add a few ice cubes to your cold dalgona coffee to make it extra refreshing!

    Recipe suggestion: dalgona coffee pairs perfectly with a thick slice of banana bread.
