Homemade Dukkah Recipe
Dukkah is a mix of coarsely ground nuts, seeds and spices originated in Egypt.
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
- 1 cup nuts roasted (macadamia, almonds, hazelnuts, pine nuts or combination)
- 1/3 cup sesame seeds toasted
- 2-3 tablespoons coriander seeds
- 2-3 tablespoons cumin seeds or 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon good quality salt like Celtic Sea Salt or Maldon Salt
- optional ingredients: dried herbs like oregano mint or thyme, sumac, chilli flakes
Roast nuts and sesame seeds in the oven. If using macadamia nuts, watch them as they roast quicker than almonds or hazelnuts.
Put coriander and cumin seeds into food processor and pulse. I prefer to use ground cumin, because seeds can be hard to crush. A heavy mortar and pestle or coffee grinder can be used for that, but I find it faster to stick to one appliance (and less to clean afterwards).
Add nuts, ground to coarse consistency.
Put salt, pepper and sesame seeds and mix briefly. Too long processing can turn the mixture into a paste.
Store dukkah in airtight glass container or jar at room temperature.
