Egyptian Spice Mix - Dukkah Recipe

Spices are AMAZING and are used in many dishes; of course just because the word spice is mentioned it doesn't mean your food has to taste spicy hot.  Think of Moroccan Tagine Recipes where a mix of delicious warming spices such as cinnamon and sweet paprika are used along with honey to create easy mouthwatering, one-pot meals that are a delight to eat.  Meat or chicken cooked in a Tagine is really tender and the aroma when cooking is just fantastic.

Dukkah (pronounced Doo-kah), is an aromatic blend of seeds, spices and nuts; it originates from Egypt and can be sprinkled on all sorts of dishes.  It's also delicious served alongside a small bowl of really good olive oil and some nice bread.  Just dip the bread in the oil and then in the Dukkah. Impress your guests at a dinner party by serving it as a very simple but different starter course - you could add small bowls of olives to nibble on too.

Dukkah recipe

There are many, many variations of Dukkah recipes.  The basic recipe is a mixture of nuts and seeds long with dried herbs such as mint or for more heat you can add Baharat or Ras el Hanout; go with whatever takes your fancy.
