I never really realised how to make dukkah, or really what was even in it, just that it tasted good – but it’s super simple with only 5 key ingredients πŸ™‚ This is great with bread, olive oil and balsamic (got a homemade focaccia recipe coming up next!), sprinkled over avocado toast, or used to crust vegetables like sweet potato when baking. Yum πŸ˜‹

Stats: costs about $15 but you’ll be able to make lots of batches with the ingredients, takes half an hour, makes about a cup, and has a fair bit of protein, iron and calcium – almonds and sesame seeds are a source of all of these things. πŸ™‚



2/3 cup nuts (I used almonds, just because we have a lot rn)
1/3 cup sesame seeds
2 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tsp salt
Sprinkle black pepper
Optional: sprinkle garam masala, dried mint leaves (I used both), chilli, dried herbs, etc



Preheat oven to 180*C.

Chop your nuts by hand or using a food processor until well-crumbled, going as coarse or as fine as you’d like your dukkah.

Add sesame seeds, coriander seeds and cumin seeds and give a quick extra chop to break them up a little. Stir through salt and pepper.

Place dukkah on an oven tray and bake for 5 minutes or until golden and toasted, stirring around often. Once toasted, store in a jar in a cool, dry and dark place for ages.
