What is Dukkah? How to make Dukkah?


Dukkah is a tradition blend of chopped nuts, seeds, and spice originating from Egypt. A common mixture is toasted hazelnuts, sesame, coriander seeds, and cumin. Various spices are often blended into this mixture.

Most commonly eaten as a dip. Pita wedges are dunked into olive oil and then into the Dukkah, Dukkah is also often used as a seasoning or a crust for meats/fish. You can also add it to vegetable such as green beans when sautéing for a great flavor. I stubbed across Dukkah while in Turkey and have often used its savory blend for quick weeknight dinners.
