Egyptian Dukkah, Spices, Snack, Nutty, Fragrant
What a crazy week I’ve had! It’s gone so quick and I can vaguely remember this time last week..
So not having cooked for over a week and I feel I have neglected you all with my lack of recipe or reviews flooding my blog, twitter or Facebook! But I’m getting back to normal, the hunger for creating and EATING ( I had lost my appetite a bit) has slowly creeped up on me again.
In fact as I’m writing this I may consider popping to Southbank today to check out their Free From Food Festival ( all things good for you and free from dairy, wheat, sugar etc).. not like it’s a choice for me these days as I seem to be developing an allergy or some sort every month! Not good for an avid gourmand and food writer…
Anyway enough for my trials and tribulations this morning, let’s start it on a good note!
The first thing I made last night was something I’ve become quite addictive to of late, it’s a great choice for a snack and pretty easy and quick to make.
It is of course Egyptian Dukkah, this crumbly mixture of fragrant roasted spices (cumin and coriander seeds) takes you into the bustling streets of Cairo…. this spiced up, crumbly, nutty textured dip has a saltiness that’s pungent & fierce! It’s so good!
So grab those spices, a pestle and mortar, some wraps or pita bread is ideal and extra virgin olive oil and dip n dunk to your heart’s content.
Check out the recipe here from Saturday Kitchen give it a try! I substituted the almonds for cashew nuts but you can do either!
