This Ramadani Khoshaf recipe is simply sugar-free. Knowing that most dried fruits in Egypt are already sweetened, I found no need to add any extra sugar (if you feel you do need sugar then add it while the dried fruits are boiling according to taste).

The recipe is super simple – you put the same amounts of dried figs, dried apricots and prunes with half the measure of raisins and a quarter from the nut. So whatever the amount of Khoshaf you want to prepare (since Khoshaf can last up to 10 days in the fridge), just stick to the comparative measures.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried figs
  • 1 cup dried prunes
  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup raisins - زبيب
  • 1/4 cup almonds (peeled & silvered) - لوز
  • 4 cup water - ماء
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Blossom Water (optional) - ماء الزهر

Step by step

  1. Wash all ingredinets thoroughly and cut figs into quarters. You may also cut prunes in half to deseed them.
  2. Put all ingredients (except the almonds) in a medium pot and cover with water. Put it on medium heat until it comes to a boil (about 10 minutes).
  3. Remove pot from the heat, stir-in orange blossom water if using any, and let it cool for a few minutes before you transfer the Khoshaf into a bowl or a box to place it in the fridge. Leave it in the fridge for a minimum of two hours or overnight.
  4. Just before serving, add nuts and stir them into the sauce. Serve it cold.
