To make the sugar syrup, place all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil (this happens fairly fast), lower the heat, and continue to boil for approximately 5 minutes until the syrup slightly thickens. Remove from heat and cool completely.
In a food processor, pulse the pistachio kernels until they are somewhat fine. Transfer them to a mixing bowl.
Add the attir (sugar syrup) to the bowl and mix it with the pistachios until it forms a sticky mixture. Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking, and roll the pistachio mixture into small round portions.
Using your palms, open each portion slightly to form a cup shape. Place each cup into a mini cupcake tray that has been brushed with a little water.
In another mixing bowl, combine the crumbled ricotta cheese, white sugar, and rose water. Mix well.
Scoop the ricotta mixture into each of the pistachio cups. Place the tray in the refrigerator and allow the cups to set for about 30 minutes.
Once the cups have been set, remove them from the tray. It's best to remove them while they are chilled, as they will be easier to handle.
Garnish each cup with dried rose petals in the center.
