Default Kamaridin - how do you use it?

Kamaridin - Apricot paste sheets

We have picked up a pack from Carrefour's pre-Ramadan display. I presume you can just eat bits off it, but I am looking for a recipe to use it in cooking - can't find any on the net, anyone help?

Qamar-a-deen is a traditional Ramadan drink - the locals soak the sheets in hot water to turn it into a thick liquid. Add a few drops of orange blossom water, and top with toasted pine-nuts.

Last Ramadan all I saw the locals drinking was Vimto. I asked a guy why so much Vimto when I was at the till... 'gives you energy for the fasting'

Vimto was always served at Asian parties when I was a kid in Kuwait - the real reason was that half the men were covertly drinking red home-brew wine. It was good camoflage....

But yes, sweet drinks are popular in Ramadan, I guess as they are hypertonic.

Ah that makes a lot of sense. We bought some and had vodka vimtos. Quite nice actually but it stains your teeth terribly.

No worries - you could also try this recipe from Moro - not tried it myself, but I have tried a lot of other recipes from there and been pleased with the results. It's one of my favorite mid-east/med restaurants in London.

How do you use Kamaridin?

Apply it three times a day to the infected area, taking care not to scrub it in (it must be applied in a smooth gentle motion). If the itching has not cleared up within five days, ask your GP to refer you to a sexually transmitted diseases clinic.
