Dukkah (sometimes transliterated to “duqqa”) is a blend of ground roasted nut meats, seeds and spices traditionally used as a condiment in many Middle Eastern cuisines. The name is often traced to an Egyptian word (pronounced “dakka”) that means “to crush.”
Our Dukkah is modeled on a classic Egyptian version which balances the round, warm flavor of roasted hazelnuts with the heat of dried chile and acidic tartness of sumac. We’ve added sesame seeds to accentuate both the nutty flavor and the satisfyingly crisp crunch of our custom blended Dukkah.
There are as many ways to enjoy Dukkah as there are variations of the blend. One of the most widely spread uses is as a condiment for flat breads, sometimes sprinkled on top and sometimes the bread is first dipped into olive oil and then into Dukkah. Other traditions use Dukkah to season vegetables (either raw or cooked) or to season the fried foods especially fish.
Dukkah is an aromatic Egyptian condiment often stirred into dips and spreads. This imaginative take on couscous is a great gluten-free side dish with tons of flavor. The spices, nuts and sesame seeds in our Dukkah create a crunchy, flavorful topping.
