 Related image  The Egyptian Dukkah is no traditional spice blend. Which is exactly why you'll want to try it.                                                                     

  Dukkah [doo-kah] is a savory crunchy specialty with a distinctly nutty taste, a wonderfully fragrant combination of roasted nuts and seeds, that is all about savouriness and adding easy rich flavor 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. It shares a few of the same components as Za'atar, such as thyme and sesame seeds.  Dukkah can be enjoyed from snacking to cooking, adding instant smoky, wonderful nutty flavor & crunch to whatever you sprinkle it on. 


❖  Flavor profile

Earthy and fragrant with a very subtleness that hits the back of the throat. You’ll also find hints of tangy, nutty and just a bit of saltiness.  Lacks heat because it lacks any chiles.  Dukkah is surprisingly addictive and can quickly found a way into your heart.

❖  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.  
  • Dukkah is so much more versatile than just being used for dipping.  In addition to using this as a dip for flat bread it can also add some flavor complexity and character to baba-ganoush, bruschetta, hummus, omelets, pasta, quesadillas, rice, salads, steamed vegetables, and yogurt.
  • Try using Dukkah for all manner of crusts and rubs for chicken, lamb, fish, and even tofu, or anywhere a salty and savory crunch would be nice.
  • Use it to season eggs, grilled meats, soups, salads and even popcorn. 
  • Or try it like in Middle Eastern street markets, where Dukkah is often found portioned out in paper cones for snacking by itself.
  • Generously sprinkled over scrambled eggs. Swirl it into some good olive oil or into your favorite tahini sauce or hummus.
  • Sprinkled on labneh (yogurt cheese) along with a drizzle of good-quality olive oil.
  • Dukkah adds an explosion of delicious flavor when sprinkled on roasted vegetables, roasted potatoes, meat and leafy salads, feta cheese.
  • 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 legume pastes such as hummus, and over simply cooked rice or lentils, 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 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. 
  • Dukkah adds an all around kick to your favorite recipe! Try experimenting with it.
  • Dukkah is one of those things that we continuously find new purposes for. One personal favorite is with Dukkah Pita Chips—toss triangles of pita with olive oil and a healthy smattering of Dukkah. Then spread pita triangles in one layer on a baking sheet and toast in a 400°F (200°C) oven for 10 minutes. These chips are the ideal accompaniment over a bowlful of hummus, baba ganoush or a Middle Eastern inspired dip.
