I wasn’t a caffeine person but fate intended to weave a new love story with coffee. I accepted. A surprising obsession grew, stronger each day. Primarily because, my coffee has its own set of styles- always hot and smells good, enough to lure me every time. And when I narrated my aromatic tale to my coffee buds, it started demanding me to delve deeper and explore its diverse features.
Well, that’s how I bumped into Vietnamese Egg Coffee. At first, a speck of disgust blew past me.
“EGG COFFEE? Who drinks that?”
Probably this will be the first non-veg coffee of my life.
A series of unfortunate events
I appreciate my refrigerator. It carries all the load at such a tender age. “Awesome, I have four eggs.” Next was to knock on my neighbor’s door for milkmaid.
Whoa! My ingredients are all set. Time to embark on a new journey with coffee. But egg coffee was obstinate to shake hands with me. A failed attempt. Followed by two more unsuccessful shots.
I lost all hope. Sigh! A glass of sadness, disappointment, and despair stared at me. I drank it all. Burp!
The fruit of hard work is sweet
I woke up drowsy, as usual. To eat the leftover biryani from last night was the first thought to pop up that morning. Second, to amend the mess. After much contemplation and research, often landing in peculiar theories, I finally grasped that air bubbles are what can make the mixture float. Voila! It worked. Finally, I could make it float.
Give a nod to Egg Coffee. It is sweet, bitter, creamy, mellow, and awesome. Here is the complete Vietnamese Egg Coffee recipe.
Things you will need:
- 2 eggs
- Coffee beans (Grounded)
- A large glass bowl
- A glass
- 2 forks
- Vanilla essence (optional) *I haven’t used it in my mixture
Separate the egg yolk from its white in the bowl.
Add two tablespoons of milkmaid in the same bowl.
Merge two forks with tape. You can also use a hand blender or a frother as per convenience and availability.
Time to whisk. But here lies the real game. A slight mistake can mess up your whole recipe. So be careful while whisking your egg mixture. Make sure it contains enough air bubbles.
I had to whisk it for about 10 minutes to make it look like this. In the meantime, brew your coffee. For consistent strength, I used Lavazza beans. You can use beans as per your taste.
Once done, pour the brew into the glass. And then, the egg mixture gradually.
Congratulation, you have successfully made yourself a glass of happiness.
Don’t forget to share this recipe in your circle.
