Duqqa, du’ah, do’a, or dukkah is an Egyptian condiment. Egyptian Dukkah is essentially a blend of roasted nuts seasoned with herbs and spices. The word is derived from the Arabic for ‘to pound’ since the mixture of spices and nuts are pounded together after being dry roasted to a texture that is neither powdered nor paste-like. The most popular use of this traditional Middle-Eastern blend is to take Turkish bread and dip in olive oil, then dip the bread into the dukkah as a tasty snack. Our blend is made with roasted and crushed hazelnuts and raw ground almonds combined with sesame seeds, cumin, coriander, sumac, marjoram, thyme and salt.
Culinary Notes :
- Use as a dip for bread, salads and vegetables
- Use it as a seasoning
- Use as a crust for lamb, fish and chicken. Simply coat meat with Dukkah and cook as normal
