Homemade Dukkah

Stop buying Dukkah! Its expensive, yet so easy to make (and you get a lot more value for money when you make it from scratch)

Here is my version below:

Homemade Dukkah
150 grams hazelnuts
150 grams almonds
2 tablespoons cumin seeds
2 tablespoons coriander seeds
2 tablespoons fennel seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup zaatar
1 tablespoon smoked paprika

In a heavy base pan, dry fry the hazelnuts on a medium heat whilst stirring them so they don’t burn for approximately 4-5 minutes. Remove the hazelnuts from the pan and add them into some paper towel. Roll around the hazelnuts in the paper towel to help remove any excess skins.

Add in the almonds and cook them the same way as you cooked the hazelnuts, once done set aside.

Add the cumin, coriander and fennel seeds and cook for one minute, then add the sesame and chia seeds along with your zaatar and paprika. Cook for a further 2 minutes.

Add all of your ingredients to a food processor and pulse until you get a crumbly consistency.

Taste and add salt and pepper to your taste.

Enjoy with some continental bread and olive oil or add to your soups, garlic breads, or anywhere you want to add some additional texture and punch. I’m enjoying it with some home made tsoureki and olives – both made by my amazing Mum ❤️
