One of our colleagues,  brought traditional Iraqi breakfast — Kahi and Geymar — to our department today in the morning. Kahi and geymar combo is a popular, traditional breakfast in Iraq.

Kahi is a breakfast dish of Jewish Babylonian descent. It is made of very thin folded layers of filo-style dough, brushed liberally with butter/oil, and then folded and baked. Kahi is eaten drenched in a light date syrup with a generous portion of geymar.

iGeymar is another rich Iraqi breakfast food.  It’s thick, white cream traditionally made by skimming the fats off water buffalo milk.  A familiar counterpart will be the better-known clotted cream.

Thanks Ali for bringing this nice, traditional breakfast today.
