Description

Dukkah is a flavorful Egytian spice blend made with fragrant spices and and toasted nuts. Sprinkle it on soups, salads, eggs, avocado toast, sautéed veggies… to give an earthy flavor and delicious crunch!


Ingredients


Instructions

In a food processor pulse nuts and sesame seeds until they resemble a coarse meal.  Keep everything under the size of a pea.  (Take care not to over pulse as this will turn nuts into nut butter).

Add this mixture to a dry sauté pan and place over medium-low heat.  Give a stir every 30 seconds or so for about 3-4 minutes.  Lower heat to low and add the coriander, cumin, fennel, pepper and salt to the ground nut mixture in the pan.  Stir for another 3-4 minutes until slightly fragrant.


Notes

For an authentic Egytian version, use hazelnuts intead of pecans.

Feel free to use whole spices and grind them yourself: 1 teaspoon ground = 2 teaspoons whole.

Store in an air tight jar for up to 3 months.
