    Hi Dimah

    Thanks for the lovely blog and all the great recipes.

    I never heard on Noque’iyeh! It sounds very interesting. I was looking for other ways to use Qammruddin.

    How do you make it? Are you planning to post a recipe?

  2. Dimah says:

    Kano: Many thanks for your kind words!
    Inshallah I’ll post the recipe soon :)

    You can also use boiled water to dissolve it faster.
