Things to know about Rooh Afza Recipe

The Indian Traditional Rose Drink or “Rooh Afza” is a concentrated squash made with rose water and herbs. “Rooh” means “soul” and “Afza” means “refreshing”. Thus, “Rooh Afza” literally means “soul refresher”. It was founded by Hakim Hafiz Abdul Majid in 1906. The drink was launched in Old Delhi. Currently, Rooh Afza is manufactured by companies founded by the owner and his sons. Rooh Afza is often consumed on Iftar in Ramadan, hence important for Muslims. Apart from India, the drink is also available in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and the Middle East. Sometimes, milk is also added to Rooh Afza.
