Homemade Nutty Dukkah - enjoy as is with olive oil and turkish bread or add to your favourite soups and salads

Homemade Nutty Dukkah


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2 tablespoons cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (we used black)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds


  • Pre-heat oven to 180 C / 350 F. Add the almonds to a roasting tray and roast for approximately 10 minutes or until golden. Add the cumin, coriander, fennel and sesame seeds to another tray and roast for about 10 minutes or until golden. Keep on eye on them.
  • Once cool add both to a mortar and pestle, along with the ginger, chia and salt. Bang away until you achieve a crumb. You don't want it super fine but no big chunks for little ones either.
  • Serve with olive oil and fresh bread or see my other ideas below


Will keep in an airtight container for a few weeks
If you don't have a mortar and pestle, add to a food processor and pulse until the desired consistency is reached
