Dukkah is an Egyptian dish made from a mixture of roasted nuts, seeds, herbs and spices, you will find there is almost an infinite variety of local versions, it is used to add flavor in many other recipes, but the most traditional use is to server it in a shallow bowl with bread and olive oil, you dip the bread in the olive oil and then in to the Dukkah, a bowl does not last once you start.

Dukkah can also be added so salads to add a bit of crunch or used as a seasoning with almost anything, try adding it to roasted vegetables in the last few minutes of cooking.

My first introduction to Dukkah ( also know as Duqqa or Dukka, so I am told) was via the version make by our local Olive company, Olives Et Al, their version is excellent, but I wanted somthing with a little more bite to it, so we started playing around with our own recipe.

Please feel free to play with this recipe to, we have,  but we always seem to have  either Hazelnuts and or Almonds and Sesame seeds with Coriander and Cumin with a Salt and Black pepper, I always add some Chilli flakes or powder, and a nice smoked Paprika works very well.


  • 100g  Hazelnuts
  • 100g Blanched Almonds
  • 100g Sesame Seeds
  • 25g Coriander Seeds
  • 25g Cumin Seeds
  • 12g Fennel Seeds
  • 3 tsp Black Pepper Corns
  • 2-4 tsp Chilli Fakes or Smoked Paprika
  • 3 tsp Thyme
  • 100 g Course Sea Salt

Individually dry fry  all the ingredients except the Chilli flakes/Paprika, Thyme and Sea Salt, then either grind in a pestle and mortar (if you are tough) or do like I did and use my blender to , to make it into a course mix (you need the big nuts to break up, and the pepper corns to have blended in.

If it is not hot enough you can add more chilli..
