Emirati Khameer for #BreadBakers

Prep Time40 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Servings: 6 breads


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dry milk powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon saffron
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 3/4 cup warm water 120 F
  • 1/2 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • ghee


  • In a large bowl, combine flours, milk powder, sugar, salt, saffron, cardamom and yeast. Add water and knead until dough comes together. You may have to add a little extra water, but only add a few drops at a time if necessary.
  • Knead for 5 minutes to form a soft and elastic dough.
  • Place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a clean kitchen towel. Leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 6 equal portions and form into round balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one dough into a circle, about 6" in diameter.
  • Heat a skillet/tawa. Brush with a little ghee. Place rolled out dough on the hot tawa. Cook on medium heat for 1-2 minutes until bubbles start to appear on the top. Flip over. Brush a little ghee on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cook for another minute until browned on the bottom side. Repeat until all the dough has been cooked.
