Quarantine is a period when we are all mostly bored and stuck at our homes yet we all have started to use this quarantine at the fullest. This is indeed the best time to cherish our hobbies or our favorite pastime. Here I will be speaking about the top 3 social media cooking trends which became very famous over social media. And yes which mostly everyone has tried making at home. The best part of Lockdown cooking is that the entire family or everyone in the family tries to innovate and bring up with their best and this not only helps in making relationship strong but also, makes a newbie in the kitchen explore and learn new things in the kitchen!
1. Dalgona Coffee- This is one of biggest trending beverages which took over the Internet. Simple yet tasty drink to make at the convinience of your home. The ingredients like coffee, sugar, milk and ice are mostly available at everyone's place. If you're newbie, then this great one to start with as it's easy and simple. Or if you're someone like me, who can just boil an egg or make Maggi, still this should be must try trend for you. Even this can be tried by kids as there is no gas or electricity involved. Even though there was a huge wave of memes over social media about Dalgona coffee, let me share you the basic recipe of it! In a medium bowl, take sugar, coffee, and water. Mix until mixture turns silky smooth and shiny. Continue mixing until it thickens and holds it's foamy shape. Fill a glass most of the way full with ice and milk. Then add the froth that you made before , stir it before having it! This is the easiest cold coffee option at home. Trust me!
2. Maggi Pakora- If you're someone like me, who just loves Maggi then you'll feel why didn't you try it before! This is a very easy starter to make and a great snack to much on! Everyone would love to try this spicy Maggi pakoras at home. Even the best part is , both vegetarians and non- vegetarians can enjoy this. First boil only the Maggi noodles 80%. Then let it get cool and come in room temperature. Then add Maggi masala, red chilli powder, cumin powder, ginger garlic paste, salt, Maggi magic masala, veggies, gram flour & rice flour. Bind them all together. Now shape them as you wish, dip them into a batter of bitten egg & salt. Then coat them well with bread crumbs. Again deep them into egg and well coat with bread crumbs. Lastly deep fry them. Serve them hot with Ketchup.
3. Banana Bread This is something we have seen mostly every celebrity making as it's a dessert, which doesn't need any high end recipe. This can be made easily by anyone at home. Preheat oven and grease the loaf pan.Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Cream together butter and brown sugar in another bowl. Stir in eggs and banana untill it blends well. Mix banana and flour mixture and stir it to to moisten. Pour the final batter into the grease loaf pan, which we did while we preheated the oven. Now bake it in the oven for 60- 65mins.
