Homemade dukkah


Nici Wickes' dukkah recipe makes the perfect homemade gift this festive season. Try dipping olive oil-soaked bread into it or toss dukkah through a salad for added flavour and crunch


  • 1 cup macadamia nuts (or hazelnuts)
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 4 tbsp sesame seeds – Nici used a mix of black and white
  • 2 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 160ºC.
  2. Bake the macadamia nuts and almonds in a pan until they release their aroma and are lightly toasted – about 15-20 minutes. Transfer to the bowl of a food processor or mortar and pestle.
  3. Roast the seeds in a pan until toasted and aromatic.
  4. Blend all together with the salt, until roughly chopped.
  5. Cool, then transfer to jars.
