❖ The Egyptian Dukkah [doo-kah] is no traditional spice blend — which is exactly why you'll want to try it.
Dukkah is a crunchy specialty with a distinctly nutty taste, a fragrant combination of roasted nuts and seeds, that is all about savouriness and adding easy flavour to the simplest and plainest of foods, but also with endless culinary possibilities.
Dukkah combines exotic toasted spices, hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds, and dried herbs with sea salt and sesame seeds for a deeply satisfying flavor and texture. Can be enjoyed from snacking to cooking, adding instant smoky, nutty flavor & crunch to whatever you sprinkle it on.
❖ Flavor profile
Earthy with a very subtle heat that hits the back of the throat. You’ll also find hints of tangy, nutty and just a bit of saltiness.
❖ Here are just a few ways you can rock the Dukkah:
- Traditionally, Dukkah is the perfect companion to fresh crusty bread and extra virgin olive oil: bread is dipped first in olive oil and then in Dukkah for an unforgettable bite packed with flavor.
- Generously sprinkled over scrambled eggs.
- Dukkah adds an explosion of delicious flavor when sprinkled on roasted vegetables, meat and salads.
- Try using D u k k a h for all manner of crusts and rubs for chicken, lamb, fish, and even tofu, or anywhere a salty and savory crunch would be nice.
- Try it on pan-roasted carrots in winter, steamed asparagus in the spring, grilled eggplant in summer and broiled romanesco or cauliflower steaks in the fall.
- A little Dukkah sprinkled on salads or as a crust for goat cheese or tuna is a simple way to enhance their inherent flavors.
- Used as a crumb for lentil keftethes or veggie burgers.
- Try Zucchini chips encrusted in Dukkah.
- Sprinkled over béchamel sauce layer of moussaka before baking.
- Simply served over a bowl of thick Greek yoghurt.
- Use it to season grilled meats, soups, and even popcorn.
- Sprinkled on everything from roasted vegetables, atop salads, fried chickpeas, pasta, pizza, rice, feta cheese, and even fresh fruit.
- Garnish a bowl of soup or rub some onto salmon before grilling. Or stirred into pasta.
- Use Dukkah as a garnish on top of hummus, and cooked lentils.
- Dukkah adds an all around kick to your favorite recipe.
- Our personal favorite is with Dukkah Pita Chips—toss triangles of pita with olive oil and a healthy smattering of Dukkah. Spread pita triangles in one layer on a baking sheet and toast in a 400°F (200°C) oven for 10 minutes. These are the ideal accompaniment over a bowlful of hummus, baba ganoush or a Middle Eastern inspired dip.
Our Dukkah spice blend follows faithfully a very popular recipe used in Egypt. It is carefully handcrafted from lightly toasted chopped Hazelnuts, chopped Almonds, shelled Pistachios, white Sesame seeds, Coriander seeds, Cumin seeds. And Tellicherry Black peppercorn, Thyme, and Himalayan Sea Salt.
