Ice Blewah to break the fast

I like simple and I am a simple person too. So, what I like to eat as iftar is something fresh, sweet, cold and of course simple and easy to make. Young coconut with vanilla syrup and ice cube, is just perfect to quench you thirst after fasting. Or you may try ice blewah with vanilla syrup and ice cube too. Well, Ramadhan is always special for me.


Iftar refers to the evening meal when Muslims break their fast during the Islamic month of Ramadhan. Iftar is done right after Maghrib (sunset) time. Traditionally, a date is the first thing to be consumed when the fast is broken.
Ice Blewah

Here, in Jakarta, we can see there are so many blewah sold in traditional market during Ramadhan. Blewah is very popular in Indonesia. Blewah has the same species with Melon, it has similar aroma and taste as Cantaloupe.

The ongoing Ramadhan foodie event Joy From Fasting to Feasting 3 is hosted by Lubna Karim, and I would like to participate in this event. For this event I'd like to make Ice Blewah as iftar. I guarantee, you'll like it. The freshness and sweet smell of Blewah always remind me of Ramadhan.

The quick and easy prep to make Ice Blewah won't take your hands full with things as if you bake something. All you need is only blewah, knife, shredded tool, water, ice and sugar.

Ice Blewah

How to :
1. Cut blewah, seeded and shredded. Set aside.
2. Dissolve sugar in hot water. Mix well.
3. Put the shredded blewah in a bowl and mix with sugar syrup. Refrigerate.
4. Serve cold and add ice cube when desired.

Have a blessing Ramadhan to all of you !

Marhaban Yaa Ramadhan

Marhaban Yaa Ramadhan

Once again we welcome it, and once again it welcomes us. For all Moslem around the world, happy Ramadhan ! A very sacred month, 30 days of fasting from dawn to dusk, bettering ourselves in principle of faith. May our fast be accepted and blessed. Amiin.

Exploring my new lens is always giving me a new sensation of photography. I can get large aperture to f/1.8, also I can get perfect bokeh. :D So if you don't mind, I really want to show you some of my picture, I've taken with my new fixed lens.

Mini Pie

This is mini pie, sweet and crunchy. And also, it perfect for your afternoon tea. No recipe this time, because I'm not the one who made that mini pie. :) But absolutely I can share nice pictures with you. Hope on my next post, I can post something about foods or drinks for break fasting on Ramadhan.
