Dalgona Coffee

 

I know I’m very late with this but I just had to try it as I’ve seen it so many times on my social media feed.

The actual froth contains of 3 ingredients and it takes less than 5 minutes to make (well if you make it by using an electric whisk – there was a viral challange going on where people tried to whip it by hand…. but ain’t nobody got time for that).

It was surprisingly delicious as I thought it might taste overbearingly sweet (and this comes from a person that always have sugar in her coffee). But a little stir and a sip later… my sister pointed out that it’s very similar to those Starbucks ‘ready-to-drink’ coffees you can buy in stores. So I think if you enjoy ice lattes – you will also enjoy Dalgona coffee.

Have you guys tried this? What did you think, was it a yay or nay?

Doogh

 

There’s a heathwave in UK and what’s better than a cold glass of Doogh when it’s 31 degrees? Doogh is an Iranian fizzy yoghurt drink and it’s so popular in the entire middle east that it’s sold next to popular soda drinks in corner shops.

Its purpose is to cool and help with digestion and for any Iranian uncles – it works as a miracle sleeping pill (no honestly tho, it does have an effect to make some people sleepy).

You can find plenty of versions of this drink but I’m going to share this one that I made today which is inspired by what my mom used to make.

Hope you like it and have fun in the sun! Bon Shabetit!

 

Ingredients

(For 4 glasses)

4 dl Creamy Greek yoghurt (traditionally made with fermented yoghurt so it’s intensely sour, I looooooooove it with fermented yoghurt but greek yoghurt is something I always have at home so as it’s handy it became my choice of yoghurt)
8 dl sparkling water
1 ½ tsp salt (or however much you want really… I hate giving out salt measurements because it’s different depending on the individual and how salty they like the things they drink and eat. But I thought I’d give you an ‘idea’ of how much you could salt but honestly, I just salt as I go)
1 tbsp dried mint
Ice

Dried rose petals
Celery sticks
Cucumber
Fresh Mint

Method

  • Mix yoghurt with sparkling water.
  • Add dried mint and salt.
  • Garnish with rose petals, celery sticks, mint leaves and cucumber
