Meshmesheya: A Refreshing Delight

Meshmesheya: A Refreshing Delight


 As the sun sets and the day's fast comes to an end, nothing is more rewarding than breaking your fast with a drink that's both nourishing and steeped in tradition. Qamar Al-Din, a sweet apricot nectar, is a staple in many Middle Eastern homes during Ramadan. This year, we're sharing a special twist on this classic – our very own Nuba recipe that promises to refresh and revitalize. 

Ingredients for 4 Servings: 

  • 4 cups Nuba Qamar El Din juice 
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch 
  • Ground pistachio, for garnish 
  • Dried rose petals, for garnish 


  1. Start by mixing the cornstarch in half a cup of Qamar El Din juice in a small bowl. Ensure there are no clumps for a smooth consistency. 
  2. Take a medium saucepan and combine the remaining Qamar El Din juice with the cornstarch mixture. Place it over medium heat, stirring continuously to avoid any lumps forming. 
  3. Keep stirring until the mixture reaches a boil. Then, reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for a couple of minutes, just until it starts to thicken. 
  4. Once thickened, remove the saucepan from the heat. Carefully pour the mixture into individual serving glasses. 
  5. Place the glasses in the refrigerator to chill. For the best results, let them set overnight, ensuring the mixture is firm and completely chilled. 
  6. When ready to serve, garnish each glass with a sprinkle of ground pistachios and a scattering of dried rose petals, adding a touch of elegance and flavor. 

This Meshmesheya recipe is a celebration of the joyous spirit of Ramadan. It's a homage to tradition with a hint of Nuba innovation that makes your Iftar both memorable and delicious. Enjoy this delightful nectar and may your Ramadan be filled with blessings and joy.
