Recipe: Dukkah

Spices and aromatic herbs mixtures
September 09, 2008

I've harvested all seeds from my aromatic plants and spices, and I guess it's the right time to enjoy a dukkah. Any way, all ingredients are dried, so you can prepare this recipe in every season.

Dukkah is an egyptian recipe, a perfect snack for a quiet evening. The pita bread, cut into small triangles, should be dipped into the olive oil and then into the dukkah.



100g almonds
50g pistachio nuts
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme

Toast the almonds and pistachio nuts in a hot oven for 10-15 minutes.
Toast the coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and sesame seeds in a pan for 5 minutes.
Cool and combine with the remaining ingredients. Grind them coarsely.
