Duqqa (Dukkah) - Egyptian Spice Mix
Type: Herb and Spice Mixes
  • ⅔ cup hazelnuts
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ sesame seeds
  • ½ cup coriander seeds
  • ¼ cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sea salt
  1. Combine the nuts on a baking sheet and bake at 400˚F for ten minutes, stirring the nuts every 2-3 minutes. Remove the nuts when they are a slightly darkened golden brown and before any parts begin to burn. Remove the nuts from the oven, and remove some of the skins by sealing them in a jar and shaking vigorously for a few moments. When the nuts have cooled slightly, remove them from the jar, taking care to leave the skins.
  2. Place the nuts in a food processor. Toast the seeds in a dry, cast iron skillet, over medium heat, stirring constantly. After the seeds have become aromatic, continue to stir over heat for another 3-4 minutes, taking care not to burn the seeds.
  3. Add the seeds, black pepper and salt to the food processor and process until the mixture is relatively uniform and slightly coarse. Store in an airtight container.
