Dukkah is an Egyptian mix of nuts, seeds and spices that is roasted and ground. The blend of ingredients can be varied to suit you own tastes, this recipe is a combination that I like to make. But you can vary to suit you own tastes. You could add hazelnuts instead of the nut mix I have suggested. Chilli (flakes), fennel or coriander seeds are other spices and seeds you might like to try. Experiment to see what you like.
We most often eat this as a dipping mixture – dunk crusty bread into olive oil and then into the dukkah (then into your mouth!). But there are many other options for how to use this tasty mix; use as a crunchy topping sprinkled on salads, roasted vegetables or as a rub for fish or meat. Try coating chicken strips and then pan fry – crunchy tasty chicken tenders in no time at all!
I store the dukkah in a sealed container in the fridge. Particularly as this mixture has macadamias in it. Stored this way the dukkah will last several weeks.
It also makes a lovely gift, great for Christmas time.
This recipe makes a large quantity – enough to make 5 small gift sized jars to give away and still have some left over for yourself.
- 150g roasted almonds
- 50g pistachio nuts
- 50g macadamia nuts
- 50g sesame seeds
- 10g chia seeds
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp cardamom seeds
- 1 tsp black peppercorns
- ½ tsp rock salt
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- Place almonds, pistachio nuts, macadamia nuts, sesame seeds, chia seeds, cumin seeds, and cardamom seeds into Tmx bowl and dry roast 100 degrees, 9 minutes, speed 1.
- Remove the lid from the bowl and carefully spread the roasted mixture onto a tray or large plate to cool down.
- Once cooled, add back to the bowl with the remaining ingredients lock the lid and turbo pulse 3-4 times until a large breadcrumb consistency is achieved. I like to leave a few larger chunks of nuts in my mix, as it looks nice. Be careful not to over-blitz, use the pulse button in short bursts and check in between.
- Store the dukkah in airtight containers in the fridge. It will keep for several weeks.
