My sister's better than yours. #boeber #boeberaand

Dit was Boeber-aand - the 15th day of the Fast, and in Mitchells Plain Champion Moegamat Jappie and his team were making sure that for their embattled community the tradition remains a reality



I grew up only knowing pink boeber made with rose syrup ☺️ #MommaMade And we only had it as of the 15th day.

Sad that Ramadaan is flying by but Alhamdulilaah to have reached halfway! #BoeberAand 🌺


#StaySafe #BeVigilant
#GratitudeIsOurAttitude !

It is tradition in Cape Town to say :Slamat vir die 15de Pwaasa. Ons is oppie berg. Vanaand is Boeber Aand!

The flipside to this is that we only have 14 or 15 days left before Ramadaan leaves us. May these last 2 weeks of Ramadaan be our best 2 weeks yet, Aameen.

#Nakhlistan accepts Zakaah, Sadaqah, Fitrah, Fidyah and Lillaah.

Fitrah minimum R48 per person
Fidyah minimum R12 per day

Drop off Donations at 45 Murton Road Rylands. Call 021 633 4016.

#Nakhlistan is about caring and sharing. #Nakhlistan is Not State Funded, yet we are continuing with #LockdownFeeding during this Ramadaan.

Our Soup Kitchens are operational everyday during the month of Ramadaan, thanks to our loyal donors.

We will be cooking Soup everyday in various areas. This will be distributed with bread and polony.

Today we distributed soup greens, soup mix, salt, pepper, cloves, all spice, polony, bread, boeber mix, milk and food containers to numerous areas as well as old age homes and children homes. We managed to service the following areas:

Hanover Park
Valhalla Park
Lavender hill
Bonteheuwel Mosque
Rondomskrik Eagle Park
Statice heights
District 6

Nakhlistan also provides a Khaatamul Quraan service that can be requested together with the donation of a pot of Soup or Aknie.

To sponsor a pot costs R3500. This Eid Nakhlistan will be cooking 179 pots of 130lt pots of Aknie to feed over 90 000 of the needy in our community. This can only be realized through your continuous support throughout the year. We are only able to serve through your kind generosity.

A big Shukran / Baie Tramakassie to all our loyal supporters and donors. Your kindness is truly appreciated by one and all.

Sponsor a pot in memory of a family member, for your birthday or anniversary. Sadaqah (Charity) is a gift that keeps on giving. Below are the costs of a pot:

1) Soup R1700 (130lt)
2) Meat Aknie R2700 (60lt)
3) Meat Aknie R4200 (100lt)
4) Meat Aknie For Eid R3500 (130lt)

The 15th night of Ramadan (which also marks the halfway mark of the fast) is known as “Boeber aand” (Boeber night).

Muslims will typically commemorate today by enjoying this indulgent sweet dessert for Iftar. Click the link for our coconut and date version, it's super easy! 📷: @tobymurphyphotography Food styling: @liezl_vermeulen #PicknPay #FreshLiving #FLGrams⁠

#grateful #algamdulilah

Boeber Aand marks the 15th of Ramadaan. We have made it to the halfway mark or what is referred to as Oppieberg 😆

I absolutely love this dish and this time I tried something a little different. This is my Rose Falooda Boeber. The perfect hint of Ramadan in a bowl of classic comfort. Here is my recipe:

Rose Falooda Boeber
2 Tbsp butter
1/3 cup sago soaked in half cup water
1/2 cup extra-fine vermicelli broken up
1 Tbsp Semolina
3 cinnamon sticks
3 elachi (cardamom) pods cracked
1/3 tsp fine elachi
1 litre milk
1 Tbsp rose water
3 Tbsp sugar (or more or less to taste)
1,5 Tbsp Rose syrup (more or less depending on the strength)

Soak the sago in the water for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter on medium heat in a saucepan. When it has melted, add the elachi and cinnamon and let it become fragrant for a few seconds. Then add the vermicelli and toss about till it starts to go golden brown. Add the semolina and stir about till it goes slightly pink. Pour the milk into the saucepan. Bring to the boil while stirring then add the pre-soaked sago and simmer for about 15-20 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent it from sticking. The sago should become transparent. Add the rose water, fine elachi and sugar and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes. Then add the Rose syrup just before serving and adjust for taste and colour. You don't want it too dark as it can end up looking garish. Sprinkle with chopped almonds and pistachios when serving.

If you prefer a traditional version you can find my original recipe on the website :

Boeber aand is amper hier.🤤

This week marks “oppie berg” for us here in Cape Town, and for those who are not familiar with the term, it means that half of Ramadan has past and we have reached the middle of Ramadan. Wow, time is really flying. @saberasheikessop has been trying her hand at making Boeber and came up with this (note the additions in the picture above). @goolamfakier gave it a thumbs up looks wise, but said the proof would be in the tasting.

How do you enjoy Boeber in your family? Do you keep it old school or have you reinvented this Cape Town favorite?


It’s time to Boeber Bond #Boeber #boeberrun #boeberjol #boeberjol #boeberaand #BoeberBond

South African Cape Malay Boeber: This milk beverage is so aromatic, smooth & silky made with milk, sago, vermicelli and sweetened with condensed milk.

The cardamom&cinnamon’s flavors came alive, when frying in clarified butter. Rose water adds more flavor! I served the dish with a homemade pecan nut tuile biscuits.

Oppie berg #boeberaand

Boeber is a traditional South African beverage made with sugar, milk, vermicelli, sago, and flavorings such as cinnamon, rose water and cardamom.

The flavour is rich and sweet. This beverage is traditionally served on the fifteenth night of the Ramadan in order to celebrate the middle of the fast. We have reached that night at sunset today. See below the recipe in order to create this yummy treat as well as celebrate with your Muslim family and or friends.

Recipe from Boeka Treats
Serves: 4
100 g butter
200 ml vermicelli (crushed)
1/2 tsp elachi powder or 8 cardamon seeds
3 stick cinnamon
11/2-2 l milk
1/4 cup sago
3/4 cup sugar, or to taste
100ml condensed milk(added this to my recipe, makes it extra yummy)

50 g slivered almonds
1 tbsp coconut
2 tsp rose water
Soak sago in 200ml water for 30 minutes.
Melt butter in deep saucepan, add vermicelli, coconut and almonds and toss with a fork until it is pink/brownish in colour.
Add elachi/cardamon, rosewater, milk and sugar and bring to boil.
Stir in soaked sago and simmer until sago is transparent.
Simmer until well blended.
Stir occasionally to prevent burning or sticking to base of pot.

Recipe notes:
Depending on how thick you prefer your boeber, more or less milk can be added.
Tip: 1 tin ideal milk can be added to enhance taste.

#LockdownFeeding - #RamadanDay15

It is the 15th Ramadaan and tonight is #BoeberAand , a tradition in Cape Town!

Today is already the third #LockdownSaturday during the month of Ramadan. We are still in the 10 days of Forgiveness. May Allah Forgive us all during these blessed days.

#Nakhlistan is so pleased to see that everyone coming to 45 Murton Road are wearing masks. Upon entry your hands will be sanitized. We are open from 9am until 5.30pm everyday and ensure that #LockdownLevel4 restrictions are implemented and adhered to. A kind reminder to please wear masks when in public and sanitize your hands and surfaces.

Today #Nakhlistan cooked one pot of Aknie for distribution to 'displaced individuals' along Voortrekker Road, spanning from Goodwood, Parow to Bellville.

Just when we think that Nakhlistan's list for assistance is getting shorter, more calls come in and our list continues to grow. We are literally taking it one area at a time, one day at a time.

Our vulnerable communities are in desperate need of our support. This will deepen when the harsh Cape winter arrives. The need keeps on growing exponentially.

We all have to do our bit, albeit a smile or a listening ear to anyone who needs our help during this challenging time. Be kind, caring and compassionate.

Gratitude is our Attitude!

#Nakhlistan together with your support, can assist more of the needy.

#Nakhlistan is Not State Funded and needs your assistance. Continue to share and care. Contact Shukoor Mowzer on 083 231 9279 or 021 633 4016 or logo onto
