Khameh Asal-Honey&cream

"A great Iranian breakfast and a good way to get the kids to eat dairy. My daughter loves honey (that's what she would like to eat every morning) so it's a good way for her to have it other than just with butter and bread."

  1. I served this over Recipe #296705 & it was delicious. Thanks for another way to enjoy beghrir. Made for NA*ME Tag
  2. Taste is yummy. I used keshta cream that is thick Middle Eastern cream that comes in a can. I have also specifically seen it sold in Iranian shops. It became very thinned out once I mixed in creamed honey, however I was reading on Google that this Iranian cream with honey for breakfast is whipped until thick. Maybe whipping cream then? We wanted it for breakfast to dip our gluten free stuff into but it was too thin.
  3. It took me a few goes before I got the desired consistency from this recipe. I used 3 tablespoons of honey, and I added some orange chunks to the mix as I was processing it. I ate this with my cereal (which was Muslix and a good type of cereal to go with this recipe).
  4. This was very liquid-y. Is that the way it's supposed to be? I think next time I would flip-flop the ingredients and use heavy cream instead of half and half. As is, it was not spreadable rather pourable. Reviewed for Veg Tag August.


I come from the land of Dracula and I have two little daughters; they're three years apart.I travelled a lot and I lived in Hungary,Croatia,Canada,Thailand,Japan and Iran(DH is from here). I've seen a lot of wonderful places, the travel bug is still in me but waiting for DDs to grow a little so we can go together. Lots of wonderful memories and hoping to add some more,but my travelling style has to be adjusted now.No more backpacking! I feel old,suddenly. My girls are everything for me and I'm lucky that I'm able to be at home with them.My life really changed since having them. I like eating healthy,DH works out a lot and taught me about the right foods.Right now I'm trying to lose a few kg,but I'm happy if I lose one kg/month. Never needed a drastic diet,I drink a lot of water and luckylly there's no McDonalds here(yet) to eat junk food. I prefer homemade cooking to restaurants, these days we can make a better tasting meal at home. I like knowing what goes in my food and what hands are cooking it. I always look at a chef's hands and believe me I've seen dirty fingers too! I came to the Zaar to look for a pancake recipe and now my refrigerator is full with jars of homemade stuff. I made a lot of friends and I enjoy playing in the tag games since receiving a premium membership gift from Sydney Mike. Thank you, Syd. I want to thank everyone who makes my recipes and takes the time to take photos. Sometimes I loose track and I can't get back to thank each person making a recipe. I don't mind if someone doesn't stick to the recipe,everyone's taste and needs are different,sometimes ingredients are hard to find and I know this better than most. Please feel free to experiment and hope we'll learn something new from your feedback. <a href="" id="clustrMapsLink"><img src="" style="border:0px;" alt="Locations of visitors to this page" title="Locations of visitors to this page" id="clustrMapsImg" onerror="this.onerror=null; this.src=''; document.getElementById('clustrMapsLink').href='';" /> </a> These are the tag games that I took part in: <img src= ""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Gimme 5 personal banner"> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
