A delicious bread, with decades of history. Starting out as little dough balls made from wheat or barley, there are many variations of the khameer (yeast) bread, including the use of dates, saffron and hints of turmeric for added flavour. Once baked, they resemble puffed up buns and are served with local honey and cheese.
A number of hip Emirati eateries have transformed the humble khameer to appeal to more contemporary tastes, with combinations that include Nutella chocolate, peanut butter and jam, and apple pie.
