Dukkah is an Egyptian spiced seed blend made from a range of seeds, spices and nuts. You can sprinkle it over salads, fish, meat - the possibilities are endless! You can improvise with this recipe by choosing your own combination of seeds and spices, but here's our favorite combo!
1/2 c toasted pistachios
1/2 c toasted hazelnuts
1/4 c toasted white sesame seeds
1/4 c black sesame seeds
2 tbs sunflower seeds
1 tbs crushed coriander seeds
1 tbs crused cumin seeds
1 tbs za'atar
1 tbs sea salt flakes
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1. Toast the nuts and seeds for 2-3 mins in an oven or frying pan (nuts and seeds separately) until slightly browned and fragrant. Watch carefully as the nuts and seeds can burn very quickly.
2. Crush the seeds in a mortar and pestle or food processor.
3. Chop the nuts by hand or throw into a food processor. We like to keep the nuts a little bit chuncky for crunch and texture!
4. Mix all remaining ingredients together in a bowl, then transfer to small glass jars.
Dukkah will last up to a year if kept in a sealed air-tight container.
