Dukkah (also known as Egyptian dukkah) is a traditional mixture of nuts, seeds and spices and is often used in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. It is also a delicious accompaniment for roasted vegetables, chicken or meat or sprinkled over a salad. Dip fresh bread in olive oil and then in dukkah to serve as an interesting snack before a meal.
125 ml (½ cup) roughly chopped nuts like almonds or macadamia nuts
125 ml (½ cup) sesame seeds
2,5 ml (½ tsp) ground cinnamon
1,2 ml (¼ tsp) ground cumin
- Heat a large frying pan over medium temperature without any oil. Pan-fry nuts until golden brown – take care as these can easily burn. Spoon into a shallow bowl or plate.
- Toast sesame seeds in the same way until golden brown and add to the nuts.
- Stir spices into the warm nut and seeds mixture. Allow to cool down and store in glass jars or an airtight container in the fridge for up to 30 days.
