Cousin Pete's Yummiest Dukkah (Nut Dip)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is a wondeful recipe for Dukkah = an Egyption nut dip that my cousin Pete gave me - eat it with bread dipped in olive oil... don't hesitate to try this, you won't be dissapointed :) Brilliant ice-breaking starter for a crowd.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roast the almonds, the sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, coriander and cumin seeds until lightly toasted and beginning to express oil.
  2. Allow to cool and combine well with the salt and pepper.
  3. Put the whole almonds into a food processor first and whiz briefly to reduce their size.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse lightly until it is coarse and chunky (you don't want to reduce it to a mash).
  5. Tear off a strip of bread, dip it into the olive oil, then into your dukkah mix -- heavenly !

This is fantastic, and so easy to make. I can whip it up with ingredients I (almost) always have on hand, and it really impresses guests! I also ground the cumin and coriander by hand with morter and pestle and added freshly ground black pepper as my food processor barely touches them. I ended up with whole peppercorns the first time. Thanks for sharing. :)

I love dukkah and this was a delightfully different combo of seeds/nuts than I usually use. I subbed dried chilli for the black pepper and reduced the salt slightly...I also prefer to grind mine in a pestle and morter as I feel you get a better feel for your desired texture. All in all a great combo...thanks for sharing!!
