Updated : July 23, 2021 13:07 IST
An Egyptian condiment, Dukkah is a combination of seeds, nuts, spices, and herbs. Dukkah is a word derived from Arabic that means “to pound”. It is a reference to the way a mortar and pestle are typically used to grind nuts and seeds.
It was originated in ancient Egypt. It was located at the crossroads of an important spice route that made it easier for Egyptians to get access to the then-rarely found species, such as cumin and coriander.
You can enhance the taste of soups, fried and grilled vegetables, fish, and meat dishes by adding Dukkah. It’s not at all hard to make and takes only 5 minutes. Follow the recipe and try making Dukkah at home.
Ingredients you need:
1 tablespoon of whole cumin seeds
3 tablespoons of whole coriander seeds
2 tablespoons of roasted skinned peanuts
1/4 cup of roasted sesame seeds

How and where to store Dukkah?
Dukkah can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks, although the spices may lose their taste with time and the nuts will become sour and stale. It is better to consume it fresh.
