Dukkah is used as a condiment to sprinkle over a variety of dishes. I love the nutty hit with the exotic flavor of cumin and coriander. I've had it on lamb, rice and on my morning toast and yogurt! A super versatile condiment that goes with both sweet and savory dishes.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Yields: 1 Cup


1/2 Cup Almonds

3 TBS. Coriander Seed

2 Tbs. Cumin Seed

2 Tbs. Sesame Seed

2 tsp. Nigella Seed

1/4 Cup Unsweetened Dried Shredded Coconut

1/2 tsp Smoked Salt or Sea Salt

1/2 tsp Ground White Pepper


1Measure your ingredients to have at the ready. Have the Almonds, Sesame seeds and coconut separate. (Salt and pepper will not be toasted)

2Heat cast iron skillet over medium heat for a couple of minutes to have hot. Toast the almonds slightly and spread out on a cutting board.

3Toast the sesame seeds next. They are quite oily and will toast quickly. Don't leave them too long.

4Toast the other seeds, then the coconut.

5Transfer to the cutting board to cool as you go.

6Grind it all in a food processor.

7Sprinkle in the salt and pepper and stir.
