Dalgona Coffee | Only 3 Ingredients

Frothy coffee foam atop chilled milk, Dalgona Coffee has taken the whole world by a storm and is definitely worth trying.

Super simple to make with primarily just 3 ingredients, Dalgona is a version of our Desi ‘phitti hui coffee’, just taken up a notch. The easy to remember ratio of 1:1:1 for coffee : sugar : water is what makes it uncomplicated, something than even a newbie to the kitchen can whip up in no time.

I love my coffee and hence, decided to give it a try. Happy to report, this dalgona coffee fad is here to stay, thanks to the delicious outcome.

I made a regular, plain dalgona coffee, one with cocoa powder and one with caramel sauce.

My favorite? Caramel Dalgona > Cocoa Dalgona = Plain(regular) Dalgona

The below recipe makes 2 small glasses or 1 big glass of Dalgona Coffee.


  • 2 tbsp coffee
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 2 glasses chilled milk
  • Ice cubes


  1. Blend sugar till powdered and transfer in a bowl. Add equal quantity of instant coffee powder and hot water to the bowl.
  2. Start beating the mixture. You can either use a hand blender or a simple whisk.  
  3. Keep stirring, till you get stiff peaks.  
  4. Pour milk in a glass, add ice cubes and top it with the coffee mixture on top. Serve chilled. 

Garnish with cocoa powder, coffee powder, chocolate sauce or caramel sauce. Enjoy!
