a great seasoning, with middle eastern flavours, that you can put on almost anything to add that extra yum!


  • 1 cup Hazelnuts

  • 3/4 cup Almonds

  • 1/2 cup Sesame seeds

  • 3 tablespoons whole cumin seeds

  • 3 tablespoons whole coriander seeds

  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt


  • 1.

    Roast the Almonds and Hazelnuts in a pre-heated oven (med/high) for about 8 mins

  • 2.

    Toast the sesame seeds in a pan till golden brown, add little salt at the end

  • 3.

    Toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a pan until you can smell their aroma (about 3 mins)

  • 4.

    Grind the cumin and coriander seeds in a coffee grinder

  • 5.

    Blend the almonds and hazelnuts in a food processor until they are like a coarse powder

  • 6.

    Then add the rest of ingredients including sesame seeds and blend together for another few seconds...

  • 7.

    Store in a air tight jar in the fridge so it lasts (above recipe makes 1 large jar)

  • 8.

    Enjoy with bread dipped in olive oil, or sprinkled on rice etc.


there are many recipes for this using different nuts, spices and quantities, you can experiment to get it to your taste. try a little chili or paprika if you like it a spicy...

I went to a restaurant and had toasted turkish bread dipped in olive oil and then the dukkah and it was wonderful. The chef there couldn't tell me what was in it, so I am please to have found this receipe. I am adding the ingredients to my shopping list tonight and just can't wait

Lianna, this recipe sounds simple yet great. What other foods have you used it on/in? Do you think it would be good stirred through cous-cous perhaps?
