Homemade dukkah

Makes 250 ml

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


  1. 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.
  2. Toast sesame seeds in the same way until golden brown and add to the nuts.
  3. 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.
