Emirati Khameer Bread | Khamir Bread from UAE

Emirati Khameer Bread

Emirati Khameer Bread or Khamir Bread is one of the traditional breads from UAE, served for breakfast with fresh cheese. This simple yeasted bread makes a wonderful dish to enjoy with a hint of saffron and richness of other ingredients that are used.

I adapted this recipe from Priya Sri, and almost followed it to T, except completely using all purpose flour while she used an equal measure of All Purpose and Wheat Flour. I really wanted to know how it will taste in the way it is supposed to be made.

This is a breakfast bread served with fresh cheese, while I have read other combinations of dishes served as well. Khamir refers to Yeast and I was reminded of the Khamiri Roti of Kashmir.

While the bread has the flour, milk powder used, the saffron adds to the richness as well. This was the other bread that I made along with Afghan Bread and had the creamy mutter masala as the side dish.

I was glad that I had most of my cooking done during kids holidays. Boys started their seventh grade and I will have to plan well on how I will manage the remaining dishes to be done. When I was doing these yeasted breads, I had to accomodate their request for Pizzas as well. So while I was doling out these breads, it was never ending Pizzas that also got done.

This Emirati Khameer Bread is my choice for E in the A to Z International Flatbreads, I had another one to fall back, though Entomatadas was sort of different one, not exactly related to just flatbread. If you want to know what E for Street Foods is, check it out!

How to make

Take the flour, yeast, milk powder, saffron, cardamom powder and sugar in a large bowl and combine well.
Now slowly add water and knead to make a soft dough. When the dough comes together, transfer to the counter and knead for 5 minutes to get a smooth dough.
Let the dough rest for 30 minutes. Divide the dough into 6-7 portions. Roll each portion into a disc of 4-5 inches. Use flour if needed.
Heat a flat tawa, when it is hot, place the rolled bread on the hot tawa.
When it puffs up, flip after a minute and cook the other side, spread a tsp of oil on top, sprinkle toasted sesame seeds and flip and cook for 2 seconds. Remove it on serving plate and serve it warm.
Khamir bread is served with variety of toppings along.

I served it with a creamy gravy, while labneh or hung curd, some chopped bananas and pistachios will also be great.

  2. Pizzas on the side ! Wow ! And that bread looks so nice and soft , how can you manage so much … I can never do more than 2 recipes a day .. I love to take my time and space . Excellent pick for the alphabet E !

  3. That is such a rich and exotic flatbread. I love yeasted breads with milk powder, gives them such nice and soft texture. Love the addition of spices as well and I would probably enjoy these with labneh and banana 🙂

  4. Emirati bread looks so soft and delicious. Guess adding milk powder make this bread so soft and also simply love the flavors got into that bread . Bookmarked to try

  5. Just a while back, I saw another roti recipe where milk powder was used and now I am seeing it here!! Guess it adds to the taste and texture. I did most of my cooking when the kids were in school but saved a portion for them to taste. And pizza on all roti / bread making days sounds like a fun for the kids!

  6. Emirati Khameer bread looks absolutely and very soft as much as like our Indian flatbreads. Love the flavors went in it. Even i have to give a try to this bread, bookmarked long back at Priya’s space.

  7. Yeast adds a nice softness to flat breads. This EMirati bread looks so good and what a nice one to have with mutter masala. Even Sruti started her seventh this month and it has become so hectic..

  8. My MIL loves khameeri roti and would intentionally leave the dough out in warm days to get fermented and she used to live in Dubai too. I guess she got the habit from there. Khamiri roti looks so soft and tasty.

  9. So similar to some of the naan recipes I’ve come across where milk powder is added. Th spices and saffron makes its unique. Wouldn’t mind enjoying this bread with some watermelon jam.
