What unites a country? What unites people? What unites a family? Food, probably, is one of the most uniting factors known to man!

So in celebration of Bahrain and its people, in an attempt to show that we are all really one with the same passions, needs and aspirations. In an attempt to show that what unites us, are actually an awful lot more than what could ever drive us apart, this is a small offering from all of us at Gulf Broadcast, to the great people of Bahrain…

Please come with us on a journey of discovery of the most dextrous and loved of Bahrain cuisine. Follow the story of the simple (or not so simple!) Khobiz from its raw material to the mouth-watering varieties on offer.

Now go and buy a couple of khobiz and share it with a friend, an acquaintance or even a stranger.

Go ahead. Be bold!

Be Bahraini!

    Food and flowers is safe…doesn’t get anybody busted for no reason…

    Iranian Khobiz. I call shenanigans!

    In all seriousness, brown bread should be advertised more (there is brown khobiz). White is empty calories, bleached to death and stripped of nutrients and fiber.

    Food Nazism. Fun!

      Forgot to add, the Nekhi (chick peas) and Bajilla (broad beans).

      A family of eight used to feed on 200 fils Khobiz and a bowl of Bajilla and a bowl of Nikhi.

      Also, I used to love tea & milk threed, anyone else remember all that?????

        You know, I think if you did I’d come and eat. It looked delicious and I’m a chick pea fanatic, fave food.

    It is an Iranian conspiracy! We all know that most khabbazes are run by Ajam and Howlahs.

    This is part of the Iranian plan to destabilize Bahrain. They are trying to stir up people to overthrow the government…one khobiz at a time!

    Wake up people!!!

    My little 6 months old daughter loves Khobiz, she enjoys it more than the teether!

    When I was younger, I loved taking a bite of Khobiz when taken straight away from the oven “tanoor”.

    Tastes better than the lebanese bread…

    Khobiz looks delicious. I am going to add it to my list of “exotic” homemade holiday dishes. (I am in the U.S.)

    Whatever you do, please DON’T tell McDonald’s or Taco Bell or any other “fast food” rstaurant about Khobiz.

    If you do I am sure they will butcher the recipe and sell something completely different, and probably inedible, through their drive-thrus and under the name “Khobiz”…and probably trademark it.

      Totally agree!

      I can’t eat either because of my low carb diet unfortunately, except for Saturdays where I go carbcrazy!! 🙂

    That’s what I miss! Going to Saar village and getting hot Khobiz, then Beth and I would start eating it on the way home. Can’t get that in Wiltshire…

    I remember buying Khobiz and flavored milk from a small Khobiz “Khana” on summer afternoons in Adliya back when I was 6 or 7. That brought back memories! I never knew that’s how it was spelt.
