This is a Turkish “dry dip” It might be a little exotic. But it is very good for a savory appetizer. Although Dukkah is traditionally eaten with bread, it also adds an exotic, fascinating flavor to simple raw vegetables.

  • 1/3 cup almonds or hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup white sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup coriander seeds
  • 1/4 cup cumin seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Toast the nuts, sesame seeds, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds over high heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Use a food processor, coffee grinder, or mortar and pestle to crush the toasted mixture, then season it with salt and pepper. (Don’t over-grind; you want a consistency similar to coarse-ground cornmeal.)
  • Put your Dukkah in a bowl next to a bowl of olive oil, and set out cut-up raw vegetables. Dip the vegetables first into the oil, then into the Dukkah, and eat.
