The first time I made this blend was for a party I threw during the 2008 Olympic games. My husband had invited our neighbors to join us and taste "Foods from around the world". This of course had not been cleared with the chef (me) first. So I felt compelled to deliver what was promised. I went on the internet and started to do searches on different ethnic foods and I came across this one. Dukkah is a blend of nuts, seeds and spices, and with its unique flavor it is totally addicting. Typically I serve it with olive oil and a bread. I dip the bread in the oil and then pick up some of the spice blend. The flavor is nothing like I had ever tasted before and once I started eating it I just didn't want to stop. You will notice that the ingredients, as we know now, are very healthy for our bodies. Sprinkle a little on your salad for an exciting new twist!
In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the sesame seeds until light golden brown. Pour into a medium bowl as soon as they are done so they will not continue toasting. In the same skillet, toast the coriander and cumin seeds while shaking the pan or stirring occasionally until they begin to pop.
