Divine Dukkah

My attempt at recreating a beautiful dukkah served at a winery as part of a cold platter in the Coromandel region of New Zealand. It got us hooked on Dukkah. Have it on eggs, fish, crudités, baked cheese, avocado, chicken wings, bread or even bananas !

The basic ingredients

2 tbs sesame seeds

2 tbs nuts (I used Brazil’s, but peanuts/cashews/walnuts are all good, hazelnuts are traditional)

1 tbs coriander seeds

1 tbs cumin seeds

Pinch of salt

  1. Finely chop the nuts
  2. Dry fry each of the ingredients
  3. Crush everything together
  4. Cool and store in a jar for up to 6 months and enjoy

  • Dried lemon zest
  • Dried herbs (thyme or oregano work well)
  • Chilli or red pepper flakes
  • Seeds (nigella or fennel are nice)
  • Spices (sumac is great, cinnamon or clove add a kick)
