Recipe : Amar al Din- Apricot juice
Get pressed Apricot sheets from the grocery store (they are normally sold in yellow cellophane paper in Egypt and are widely available during Ramadan, but you can find them in small quantities throughout the year) Texture and look is very similar to the Indian Aamsaat - but this isn't as sour.
The same recipe can be used for making juice from Aamsaat too.
Cut the Apricot sheets into thin strips and cover with cold water. Soak them until the strips dissolve.
Strain away the solid pieces and sweeten the juice to taste.
Bottle and refrigerate.
Dilute with chilled water when you want to drink it.
