I add a little sugar to my dukkah, as I think it helps bring out the flavour of all the other spices. It’s a great way to add taste and texture to dishes, and I love it.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g hazelnuts
2 teaspoons white peppercorns
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 teaspoons ground cumin seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons salt flakes
1 tablespoon unrefined soft brown sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Put the hazelnuts on a baking tray and roast for 5–10 minutes. While they’re still warm, place them in a tea towel and rub off the skins. Set aside.
  2. Put a frying pan over a low heat. Add the peppercorns and coriander seeds and allow to toast gently, shaking the pan all the time, until you see some smoke or steam rising from the spices. Quickly tip them into a bowl to cool them, so they don’t get a chance to burn.
  3. Now lightly toast the sesame seeds and cumin seeds separately, shaking the pan constantly, and tipping them into a separate bowl to the peppercorn mixture.
  4. Using a mortar and pestle, grind the hazelnuts to break them up. Add the peppercorn mixture and grind to a milled pepper consistency. Now add the toasted sesame seeds, cumin seeds, salt and sugar, mixing well.
  5. The dukkah will keep in an airtight container in a cool dark spot for several months.
