Ramadan Recipes: Chebab

Chebab is the Emirati version of pancakes. It closely resembles regular pancakes but has a slightly thicker consistency and includes yeast, cardamom, and turmeric in the dough. To prepare Chebab, a special baking device called a Khameer is used. This bread is a popular choice for breakfast and Sohour during the month of Ramadan.
